Abstract

This summary of four years work at the Hillside Management Project on the Los Angeles campus of the University of California details steps in brushland conversion capable of greatly reducing fuhazards on steep chaparral lands in residential areas. Grasses, ground covers and fire-resistant shrubs for replanting to provide erosion control and beautification are also considered.
