Controlled burn today

Forest Service fire personnel will be burning at least a few of the big piles left over from the 2012 and 2013 helicopter thinning work. These “landing piles” are limbs and tops of trees that couldn’t be dealt with in any other way, though more than half of the total biomass from these landing piles was either chipped and left in place (like at White Rabbit) or chipped and hauled off to Biomass One in White City. The remaining piles were not accessible to the BIG chipper used to grind the wood. You may see smoke from town and on the west side of the watershed around No Candies or Horn Gap Trails on Friday. Keep the rain and snow coming!
