The past few weeks our neighborhood
has been under going fire reduction by
Cal Fire. They have crews going through
all of our properties cutting away all flammable
brush, thinning trees and cutting
dead wood off of living trees.
A lot of the debris was chipped and spread
back where it had been removed. However some land
like ours are so steep in places the resulting debris
has to be burned in place.
Now they are in the process of burning all
the piles of debris from the brush removal.
Some of our neighbors actually refused Cal Fire's help.
Which is ridiculous and makes no sense at all.
Anyhow- here are some pictures that illustrate
the awesome job being done. Our property has
gained value in this process as it will be safer and
healthier because of Cal Fire!
The work crew are all trustees from the
Deadwood Prison in Fort Jones.
They are very hard workers and we appreciate
them being here to help us keep our home safe.
Scary looking but actually safe......
