Prescribed Burn coming up


A few days ago, Tim Grey with the Forest Service came by.  He explained that they have a burn planned for the 70 acres that is shares the southerly line of Section 14 with Crestline and Birch Hill. (The 70 acres is the blue wavy triangle piece in the photo, just above East Grade).  They have prepared the land with a masticator and hand crews to stage piles for burning.  This should be a wonderful fire break for the area of our mountain with the most cabins and homes.

Tim was looking for contact info for a property owner above the 70 acres.  Thanks to Rob Hawk who gave permission for the crew to park 4 large water tenders on his land.

When the soil is damp enough, weather conditions right and the crew in place, the burn will take place.  Tim will send a message so will know when to expect to see smoke.  I’ll turn it around so you’ll have all the details.

Thanks Tim, Forest Service Crew, Cal Fire, Forestry, Fire Safe Council and so many of you who are working to make our mountain more fire safe.
