Seasons

Autumn Has Arrived!

Fall is suddenly in the air, bringing with it relief from the heat, leaves changing colors and more time outdoors in the garden.

Shifting from one season to the next requires some advance planning (see Resources). Our local Green Acres nursery has some suggestions. SEE HERE

Fire Season

CalFire urges you to Get Ready for Wildfires! This is a good time to clean-up downed limbs and other brush, replace dead plants with ones that are fire-resistant. Your 100' defensible space should be clear around all structures! Check with CalFire in your area to see if they are hosting a talk or making a presentation on what we can do to mitigate fires in our neighborhoods.

Be prepared for PG&E's power outages should the possibility of a fire breaking-out occurs. 

El Dorado County is partnering with CalFire by offering seniors a program to remove dying or dead trees within 300 feet of a residence. For more information SEE HERE.
