Magalia Forest Health Plan

The project is part of an effort by the Butte County Fire Safe Council to apply fuel reduction on a landscape level in the Magalia and Paradise area. The project assesses forest health on 1066 acres of land. Landowners in the project area include Paradise Pines Property Owners Association, Paradise Irrigation District and Paradise Unified School District. The Fire Safe Council’s intent for this project is to develop planning and permitting for fuel reduction work during the next ten years that will help protect the area surrounding Magalia and Paradise, including all the natural resources in the surrounding landscape.
