Project: Vegetation Management

Description: The grant is to be used for the reduction of hazardous fuels and drought-damaged vegetation over more than 1000 acres, in order to reduce wildfire risks, protect watersheds, prevent the air quality degradation that would result from wildfire, and promote establishment of resilient native trees and vegetation such as oaks and toyon. Prevention of wildfire on public parklands is a high priority. Years of drought and climate change impacts necessitate an ongoing effort to remove dead or diseased trees, as they present a safety risk and are more susceptible to invasive pests. Fuel management also benefits water resources through the prevention of erosion that typically occurs after wildfires. Preservation of healthy tree canopy and greenways also ameliorates heat island effects.
