In an effort to protect lives and property, the RSFFPD is working with the Rancho Santa Fe Association and local homeowners to eliminate hazardous trees within the district and bring properties within compliance of existing fire codes.

“We are absolutely not looking to remove all of the trees in the area,” explained Conor Lenehan, Urban Forester for RSFFPD. “Rather, we are targeting only those trees that are clearly diseased. We are also encouraging homeowners to clean up and maintain any undergrowth and ladder fuels. This will help minimize the fire hazard in the community and beautify the landscape. “
