Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has issued a major amendment to Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2015-0071-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to Fallen Leaf Tree Management. The project is limited to the removal of 14 willow trees with a total combined canopy area of approximately 14,000 square feet from the creek's banks.

Each removed tree will be replaced with a 15-gallon California native tree. The trees will be removed from four locations within the Four Seasons residential community in El Dorado Hills: the area behind 513 Aspen Grove Ct., the area behind 521 Aspen Grove Ct., the area behind 5021-5025 Covered Bridge Way, and the area behind 7422-7426 Grassy Creek Way.
