Red Car Property North: Dead Trees, Dry Brush

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 8, 2016.  Despite dire warnings of the very high fire danger of 5 years of exceptional drought, a fire on the south end of the property and annual notices from LAFD, the north end of the Red Car Property still has not been cleared of dry brush and dead and dying Eucalyptus between Fletcher and the construction fence (Click on photos to enlarge.) 
Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 8, 2016.  The California Black Walnuts are beginning to drop their leaves for fall.  You can still see lots of sapling Black Walnuts sprouting on the slope among the dry weeds that were never cleared.  The green construction fence in the background, was put up across the Red Car Property by the developer of the Riverside Drive lots being developed with 14 units below the Red Car Property.  The Riverside Drive developer did the brush clearance on the adjacent portion of the Red Car Property.

The construction fence is NOT the site of the proposed zone change on another part of the Red Car Property. The current Red Car Property owner has held the property since 2001.  The owner has a history of neglecting to clear brush by May 1.  Neighbors confirm brush has still not been cleared as of today.
