California Public Resource Code (PRC) 4291 requires 100 ft of defensible space to the property line around structures to protect residents, first responders, and property. PRC 4291 does not address hazardous vegetation abatement beyond the property line of a parcel on which a protected building or structure is located.
COUNTY OF NEVADA
The County of Nevada's Hazardous Vegetation Abatement Ordinance 2463 extends and supplements state law. The ordinance ensures defensible space is maintained on parcels adjacent to improved parcels, along emergency access, and evacuation routes.
Residents within the jurisdiction of the Town of Truckee, Grass Valley, or Nevada City are subject to the vegetation management municipal codes of the respective municipality.* Please find the vegetation management codes and ordinances for Grass Valley, Nevada City, and Truckee below.
