WILDFIRE AND AIR QUALITY - TSF

THE SIERRA FUND #73668719


location_on A
  • 204 Providence Mine Road, Suite 214
    Nevada City, Nevada

Wildfire smoke containing fine particulate matter can cause eye and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, congestion, coughing, impaired lung function, and chest pain. When air quality is poor, the primary public health message is to stay indoors. However, not all community members have the same ability to limit smoke exposure in the buildings where they live, work, attend school, or spend time indoors. The Sierra Fund is working with local public health officials and service providers to ensure equitable access to places with cleaner air during wildfire.

SCOTCH BROOM REMOVAL TOOL LENDING - FSCNC

FIRE SAFE COUNCIL OF NEVADA COUNTY, INC #66657654


location_on D
  • 143B SPRING HILL DR
    Grass Valley, Nevada

The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County has tools to lend which make it easier to remove Scotch Broom from their property. Scotch broom should be removed because it is a highly flammable non-native plant and it also displaces native and beneficial vegetation. A photo ID and deposit check are required to borrow the tools.

One shrub can produce thousands of seeds after two years of growth. Removal of and by the roots is the only effective method to fight this plant in long term. Uprooting the plant as it first sprouts from the ground is the best; as durable root systems make it more difficult to remove older plants.

Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius) was introduced to the United States as an ornamental and was used as packing material on sailing ships during the Gold Rush era. Scotch broom impedes forest production, forms dense stands which impede movement of wildlife and livestock, and it degrades habitat. Scotch broom usually reproduces by seed which can live in the seed-bank for over… [read more]
