Sniktaw Road Shaded Fuel Break Project


An example of a shaded fuel break project taken from the exact same point before and after treatment.

Project Name: Sniktaw Road Shaded Fuel Break Project

Status: Funded

Project Description
The goal: Initiate a community defense shaded fuel break 100 feet on both sides of the old Sniktaw Road along the west side of Quartz Valley. A total of 40 treated acres.

• Reduce hazardous fuels on a total of 40 acres
• Thinning, pruning, and hand piling of slash will accomplish fuels reduction.

As identified in the Quartz Valley Area Fire Safe Council Plan as the number one priority, the creation of a community defense shaded fuel break, by removing hazardous fuel loads on 40 acres along the old Sniktaw Road on the west side of Quartz Valley. The Sniktaw Road Shaded Fuel Break Project is one of five critical components of a larger community defense shaded fuel break project as identified in the Quartz Valley Area Fire Safe Council Plan.

The five components of the larger project include:

1. Sniktaw Rd., 40 acres
2. Quartz Valley Rd. 5 acres
3. Shackleford Cr./Big Meadows Rd. 36 acres
4. Old English Rd. 51 acres
5. Ricky Lane 55 acres

This larger project consists of the creation of a series of continuous shaded fuel breaks, by reducing 187 acres of hazardous fuels along strategically located roadways within the area.

The total project will reduce the risk to approximately 16,500 acres of private land, 200 private residences, the Quartz Valley Indian Reservation, and upslope public wilderness values on the west side of Quartz Valley.

The Sniktaw Road component is a key element because it will provide the critical north/south defensive shaded fuel break and connect the Shackleford Creek Road complex with the Big Meadows Road complex. The Sniktaw Road component will include the treatment of hazardous fuels 100 ft. on both sides of the road for a total of 40 acres.
