Project: Fuel Hazard Reduction

Description: Funding reduction of hazardous fuels over many hundreds of acres, removal of dead or diseased hazard trees, removal of weedy exotic species including habitat improvements by enhancing native species recovery and/or re-establishment of typically fire-resistant native species such as oaks and toyon, and prevention of wildfire risks on public parklands that may otherwise damage watersheds, habitat and structures.

Reference Number: 3810P011643

Implemented By: Mountains recreation and conservation authority

Objective: Unfortunately, a number of trees (even mature oaks and sycamores) have succumbed and fallen in parkland recently. Tree health has been compromised throughout the state as a direct effect of years of drought, which also can make trees susceptible to invasion by heretofore uncommon pest species. Wildfires release significant amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and of course impose huge public safety impacts on residents, fire fighting staff, and parklands.
