FORUM: FIRE RISK REDUCTION AND TREE REMOVAL PLANS FOR THE EAST BAY HILLS’ PUBLIC LANDS
Dan Grassetti, Hills Conservation Network

The University of California, East Bay Regional Park District, and the City of Oakland want to remove more than 80,000 trees in the East Bay Hills. These public-sector entities also plan to deploy a 10-year program of herbicides. This attempt to reduce fire risk is to be funded by $5.9 million from FEMA. Come to a discussion of different visions for our hills. Ask questions and contribute your voice in advance of FEMA’s June 17 deadline for public comment.
