Document Description
The objective of the proposed project is to reduce the risk of wildfire in the seven greenbelts through fuel reduction actions undertaken by the City. Managed reduction of fire fuel hazards would include but is not limited to the following actions: thinning of vegetation and removal of trees in areas where high fire hazard conditions exist due to dry conditions; mechanical thinning and removal of vegetation would be implemented using string and blade trimmers (i.e., weed eaters), mowers, and chainsaws; and treated fire fuel materials would either be removed from the greenbelts and disposed of in a landfill with a green waste composting program or would be chipped and used as mulch within the greenbelts.
