A San Francisco Bay Area community organization committed to fire safety, forest preservation and environmental protection.
HCN was created by residents of the East Bay hills to reduce wildfire danger while preserving the unique, precious woodlands we call home. We work with local agencies to implement effective, species-neutral risk mitigation strategies.
For over a decade, we have effectively influenced environmental policies with a combination of active, constructive engagement and, when necessary, legal action.
Since its inception in 2007, HCN has filed three lawsuits, all of which were settled with terms favorable to our environmental goals. While we don't consider litigation the preferred means to resolve vegetation management conflicts, we will resort to it after exhausting all other means.
