Ridgewood Fuel Reduction Project

Example of a fuel reduction project

The Ridgewood Fuel Reduction Project will reduce hazardous fuels in an approximately 45.6 acre treatment area to protect homes and infrastructure within the Terra Linda/ Sleepy Hollow Open Space Preserve. The project treatment will focus on the removal of dead and downed vegetation and invasive, non-native plant species within the treatment area. All invasive French Broom (Genista monspessulana) within the treatment area will be manually pulled and removed from the site. All non-native blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus), with a Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of 4 inches or less will be cut and disposed of appropriately. Trees with a DBH between 4 and 12 inches will be selected and cut on an individual basis to ensure enough space between trees.  All project work will be limited to the 45.6 acre treatment area (excluding stream protection zones surrounding identified watercourses). Measures to avoid impacts to nesting birds and roosting bats will be implemented should the project occur within documented nesting and roosting seasons for the area. The project will not include the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees.
