SCOTCH BROOM REMOVAL TOOL LENDING - FSCNC

FIRE SAFE COUNCIL OF NEVADA COUNTY, INC #66657654


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

The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County has tools to lend which make it easier for people to remove Scotch Broom. 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.
 
Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius) is a highly aggressive, non-native, invasive weed species.  It was introduced to the United States as an ornamental and as packing material for cases of whiskey and beer from the British Isles, central and southern Europe.  It is now considered a pest plant by many eastern and western states.

Why this plant is considered a pest...
  • Scotch broom is highly flammable
  • Displaces native and beneficial vegetation
  • Costly in areas where forest production is impeded by its growth
  • Forms dense stands which impede movement of wildlife, livestock, and degrades wildlife habitat
  • Plants in excess quantity can be toxic to humans, horses, and livestoc…

On July 12, 2022, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved the establishment of a Defensible Space Fuels Reduction Pilot Program and committed $200,000 in funding for the 2-year pilot period. The goal of the program is to assist vulnerable residents in creating defensible space around their homes and properties in order to reduce the risk of loss of life and property in the event of a wildfire. The program will provide up to $5,000 per property to property owners in unincorporated Placer County who have very low income and are elderly or disabled to hire a contractor to assist in bringing The property into compliance with the County’s Hazardous Vegetation Ordinance requirements.
