FEMA, is in the final stages of reviewing a fire management plan covering a thousand acres from Richmond to San Leandro. The plan would involve cutting down hundreds of thousands of trees and spraying pesticide. The plan is highly controversial, and cause for heated argument between environmentalists. The most fierce debate has centered around Claremont Canyon, in the Berkeley and Oakland hills, and Strawberry Canyon in the Berkeley Hills.
