Document Description
The proposed project is a wildland fire management plan that contains measures designed to reduce wildland fire hazard. The project includes identification of areas of high wildland fire hazard, code requirements for defensible space distances around structures, and vegetation management areas and treatments on both public and private properties located outside of the defensible space requirements. Defensible space requirements must meet Uniform Fire code requirements. Vegetation management techniques on private and public lands include mowing of vegetation, removal of between 1/3 and 1/2 flammable vegetation in a mosaic pattern, removal of fuels ladders, removal of invasive exotic species, thinning of eucalyptus groves to achieve a density of 10 to 16 trees per acre, and prescribed burns. In addition, evacuation procedures in the event of a wildland fire are proposed.
