The Rispin Grove.

Here are the photos of the Rispin/Claremont grove.

I looks benign enough from across the street, but the canopy is deceptive. This is probably the most dangerous of all the groves.
Grove from Rispin drive

Piles of bark and tinder build up around the base of a eucalyptus

It has tons of fuel on the floor, fuel ladders to the canopy, and is within 100 feet of residential buildings.
