Document Description
UC Berkeley proposes to conduct the Jordan Fire Trail Improvement Project (Project) from September 7, 2021, through April 1, 2022, as described in the Wildland Vegetative Fuel Management Plan (WVFMP) and consistent with the fuel management activities evaluated in the WVFMP Environmental Impact Report. Vegetation treatment would focus on removing trees that could potentially block access if they fall across the fire trail and vegetation that could burn with intensity that would prevent safe passage. The Project comprises approximately 85 acres in the Hill Campus and would involve vegetation removal conducted along a strip of land up to 100 feet from the edge of both sides of Jordan Fire Trail. Roughly 3,100 trees, comprising primarily blue gum eucalyptus, pine, cypress and California bay, with a diameter larger than 10 inches, could be removed. UC Berkeley would remove any tree located along and within 100 feet adjacent to either side of portions of Jordan Fire Trail that is either unhealthy and determined by a registered professional forester to be dead or in poor or fair condition, regardless of species type or maturity, or that is taller than 100 feet or located so that in a fire it could fall, blocking vehicle and pedestrian access along the fire trail.
