Mill Valley Shaded Fuel Break Project

The community of Mill Valley

The objective of this project is to establish and maintain defensible space zones along the perimeter of the City of Mill Valley residential hillside communities in the high fire danger zones. While the fuel type and load varies, much of this zone currently has large accumulations of tall brush, dense stands of unmaintained trees, and/or non-native species such as Scotch and French Broom on steep slopes. The project includes vegetation management that targets non-native invasive vegetation, dead and down woody debris, and other fire hazardous vegetation while seeking to retain healthy native plant communities on approximately 21.4 acres. Environmental compliance for this project is complete and implementation/maintenance is ongoing.
