SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

It's to help stop a fire before it breaks out.

The Santa Barbara Fire Department, along with Parks and Recreation is in the process of removing five large eucalyptus trees on the 200 block of Alameda Padre Serra in Santa Barbara.

The work will take a few days. It's scheduled to be finished on Wednesday.

The trees that are being removed have been identified as having a high fire danger and the potential to create hazardous conditions for residents if a fire were to break out. The city of Santa Barbara says the removal will increase the overall traffic safety on a major evacuation route in a high fire-hazard area.
