Los Padres National Forest to Conduct Controlled Burns - Monterey Ranger District

Release Date: Jan 17, 2013  
Contact(s): Andrew Madsen (805) 961-5795, or Monterey RD Fire Management Officer Peter Harris at (831) 385-5434 x 7122

Los Padres National Forest officials announced plans to burn piled vegetation at administrative sites across the Monterey Ranger District over the coming months.

The vegetation thinning projects are mainly to provide defensible space around the administrative sites. The vegetation is cut and piled in order to dry out before burning. This helps limit the amount of smoke introduced into the atmosphere. Buring will commence when weather conditions and air quality are suitable to safely burn these fuels.
Individual prescribed burn projects will be announced via Twitter by @LosPadresNF a day or two prior to the event.

Los Padres National Forest officials today announced plans to conduct a series of prescribed burn projects over the next several months to eliminate piled brush and mechanically treated vegetation on the Santa Lucia Ranger District.
