Not only the stinking eucs, but also the highly flammable Monterey pines, Monterey cypresses, and other locally non-native trees that have been introduced to our areas. These other trees, like the eucs, have been allowed to get much too large and numerous in our neighborhoods and are highly invasive, taking over from native vegetation and reducing biodiversity in some of our parks and other open areas. The overabundance of trees increases the risk and potential magnitude of fires in our coastal communities.

Pacifica's hills and valleys, dotted with highly flammable eucalyptus trees, are a perfect cauldron for raging fires. Why do we see so many homes with yards of ready-made kindling fuel?
Why does California keep on burning?
