Wildland Vegetation Management is the practice of reducing the amount of flammable vegetation within City Open space parks, and creating and maintaining fire breaks and defensible spaces near homes that are adjacent to park land. Vegetation Management targets the removal of flammable vegetation by preferentially removing exotic plants, thinning, pruning, mowing, limbing of vegetation to remove fire ladders, and pruning out dead material. The Parks Division works closely with the Fire Department who prescribes work to be performed as identified in the City’s Wildland Fire Management Plan.
Parks staff annually performs wildland vegetation management in the following parks:
|Douglas Family Preserve||Las Positas Valley|
|Equestrian Circle||Loma Media|
