Re: “East Bay Hills Tree Removal Plan Still Sparking Debate

What is missing in the "thinning-only" statements is that a thinned Blue Gum eucalyptus stand won't stay that way. It denses back up.*

That's the reason for targeted removal of some stands around or downwind to vulnerable hillside homes. Also, big euc resprouts need to be prevented and the area can be replanted with lower-fuel, indigenous native oak, redwood, willow, or native bunchgrass stands. There will always be big Blue Gum in the hills, but if FEMA won't fund hazardous euc removal and native revegetation on the edges of Oakland, EB Parks, and UC wildlands, then we all should be concerned.
