Road edge clearing begins July 28, 2021

Our next Road Edge Hazardous Fuel Removal Project will begin on Wednesday, July 28, 2021. The Redwood Estates Services Association (RESA) Community Road Edge Easement Defensible Space Program is part of our ongoing efforts to minimize wildfire risk. This project and our Community Brush Chipping Days go toward maintaining our FireWise Community designation. 

Scope of Work: 

  • Clear / remove / chip brush, trees, vines from approximately 11 miles of roadways within the community of Redwood Estates.
  • Clear roadways to the prescribed Santa Clara County Fire Code easements to allow ingress / egress of emergency vehicles, which is defined as 10 feet on either side of the centerline of the travelled road, with a road edge clearance of 14 feet high (a 20 ft wide by 14 feet tall swath).
  • Once the above project is completed, RESA will be removing several hazardous trees within our community’s roadway easements.

We understand that many of our community members utilize plants, trees, and shrubs for privacy. Please identify with a type of label any plants that you will personally trim, and we will do our best to work around them.

These projects should be completed prior to August 28, 2021. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please feel free to contact Jeff Bates, Operations Manager, with any questions.
