 Proactive approach towards FIRE. Maybe Javea should be implementing the same as other fire departments around Spain. Javea has a big problem with dead trees in surrounding areas and neighborhoods.

Dead trees are a serious fire hazard!


 Fire Officials are concerned about tree die off in Moraga and Orinda.

Moraga-Orinda Fire Officials are concerned about the increased number of dead or dying Monterey Pine trees in Lamorinda neighborhoods. It doesn’t take much looking to see the telltale red needles of a dying pine. Official’s concerns are centered around the upcoming wildland fire season; those red needles will dry as summer approaches; they are highly flammable, and when fire climbs into the tree, they can detach and become firebrands or embers which are capable of igniting downwind spot fires. These spot fires can start anytime burning embers land in receptive fuel beds and carry as far as a mile.

With very few exceptions, once a tree’s needles turn red, the tree will not recover and must be removed. Removal reduces the community’s risk of wildfire and is required by the fire code.

Moraga Orinda Fire District would like to remind everyone that “Dead trees are a serious fire hazard as they allow fire to spread rapidly. If residents have dead or dying trees on their property, the fire code requires they be removed to reduce wildfire risk”. Fire District inspectors will begin their annual vegetation management inspections in the Spring and issue citations for properties that are not in compliance. Please assess your property for pines with telltale red needles and contact a local arborist to schedule their removal as soon as possible. More information about the fire code is available on MOFD’s website at
