Paved road clearing consists of trimming tree branches over roadways, limbing up tree branches off of the ground, removing ladder fuels and encroaching vegetation from roadsides and sidewalks and the clearing of vegetation around fire hydrants. The benefit for this clearing is to allow for a safe and efficient response by emergency personnel. All City/County streets are broken into groups and, every month, a group of streets get cleared. Prior to the clearing, an informational letter is mailed describing the scope of work to the residents in the affected areas in order to allow time to comment and contact us directly. For more information on this program please call our Vegetation Management Specialist Jesse Figoni at (415)730-9048.
