Document Description
Pursuant to requirements set forth under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 77: Safe, Efficient Use and Preservation of the Navigable Airspace, and in keeping with its obligations as an airport in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS), MOD must ensure that its airspace is clear of objects that have the potential of interfering with aircraft in flight. In order to fulfill these obligations, the City proposes to trim ~239 trees that have grown into the approach and transitional surfaces for Runways 28R and 28L. Trees identified for treatment include 88 native and 151 non-native species. Trees would be trimmed to appropriated heights, as set forth in FAR Part 77, as well as other FAA regulations, including clearance standards for existing sequence lights located on the approach to Runway 28R. Trimming methods would follow guidelines established in the "Vegetation Management Plan for Modesto City-County Airport for Adjacent Tuolumne River Interface" as well as the standards set forth by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) for pruning.
