See: Vegetation Management Plan
A Vegetation Management Plan is a bound document WHICH IS PRODUCED BY AN EXPERIENCED AND QUALIFIED WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION CONSULTANT FOR A PROJECT APPLICANT. THE PLAN MAY BE REQUIRED BY A FIRE AGENCY, AND/OR BY THE FIRE AND BUILDING CODES, OR MAY BE PREPARED FOR A PROJECT APPLICANT, ARCHITECT, PROJECT PLANNER, ETC, AS PART OF THE DESIGN PHASE OF A NEW PROJECT. IT IS A TECHNICAL REPORT WHICH EVALUATES THE VEGETATION FIRE RISK TO A NEW OR EXISTING DEVELOPMENT, AND PROPOSES THE RISK BASED VEGETATION MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS IN ORDER TO PURSUE REASONABLE FIRE PROTECTION FOR A PROJECT IN A HIGH FIRE HAZARD AREA OR WILDLAND URBAN INTERFACE (WUI) AREA TOWARDS GAINING APPROVAL BY A FIRE AGENCY.
