CA Pub Res Code Section 4464.5

The Legislature finds that, due to the absence of significant forest resources, lands in the Sutter Buttes in the County of Sutter are not likely to become eligible for classification as a state responsibility area under existing statutory criteria, but that those lands possess all other characteristics set forth in Section 4475, and substantial public benefits can be derived from prescribed burning operations on those lands. Accordingly, notwithstanding subdivision (a) of Section 4464, lands in the Sutter Buttes that have substantial accumulations of wildland fuel, the burning of which in a prescribed burning operation will achieve a combination of the purposes set forth in Section 4475, other than forest improvement, shall be deemed “wildland” for the purposes of Article 2 (commencing with Section 4475).
