BRUSH CLEARANCE

Residents are urged to be extra mindful of the fire dangers during a drought. Brush clearance in Calabasas is very important due to the brushy hillsides and lush vegetation. Here are some things to keep in mind for clearance and care:

IF THE LAND IS PRIVATELY OWNED:

  • Brush inspections began by the local fire station on May 1 on IMPROVED PROPERTY.

  • The minimum requirement for brush clearance is 200' from a structure.

  • If not cleared, the local Fire station will issue a notice of non-compliance, and the property owner will be given 30 days in which to bring the property into compliance.

  • If still non-compliant, the local Fire station will forward to the Brush Clearance Unit for enforcement. (The local fire station may, at its discretion, issue the property owner an additional 14 day extension to bring the property into compliance.)

  • If property is inevitably turned over to the Brush Clearance Unit for enforcement, County Agriculture Weed Abatement Services will clear the property and include this service cost in the property owner's tax bill.

Local Fire station #'s:
Fire Station #125 (818) 880-4411
Fire Station #68 (818) 222-1107

The Brush Clearance Unit inspects UNIMPROVED PROPERTY (vacant lots privately owned).  Their phone number is (626) 969-2375.

IF THE LAND IS NOT PRIVATELY OWNED:

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy can identify which government agency owns a particular property. Call (310) 858-7272 x 102 for information.

Brush clearance requirements vary between different government-owned lands, and are not enforced by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

LVMWD OFFERS FREE "CLASS A, EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY" GARDEN COMPOST

Rancho Las Virgenes (RLV) Community Compost has earned the coveted "Class A, Exceptional Quality” rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This rating means that RLV Community Compost has "unrestricted use" for flower, lawn or vegetable gardens. Its excellent organic soil conditioning properties aid water retention in light soils and it helps to break up and aerate heavier soils, so less watering is needed.

RLV Community Compost contains both readily available and long-term, slow release nutrients for greener plants. A blend of processed biosolids and wood chips, RLV Community Compost is comparable to garden amendments sold at some local stores and it’s the choice of many experienced gardeners and professional landscapers.

This excellent soil amendment is FREE OF CHARGE to you. The only condition is that you self-load the material.
