Description: Chaparral modification is undertaken for a variety of land-management purposes. To help land managers in selecting equipment and methods for such work, practitioners in county, State, and Federal modification projects were asked for evaluations of equipment and techniques they had used. This handbook describes the alternative techniques and equipment, provides information on operations, reports production rates and on-site costs, and explains the advantages and limitations of equipment used for brush crushing, compacting, chopping, and shredding and for grass seeding. Tools for hand methods of clearing and stump sprout control are also described.
Keywords: chaparral, fuel modification equipment, fuel management, California.
