In our previous post we showed you how a group of volunteers could help to reduce significant fuel load with chipping. This accumulation had some wood and debris that was beyond chippable so the group decided to return and with do a controlled burn to remove the last of the fuel load, which was still significant and piled underneath hydro lines. Many hands make light work and 2 controlled burn areas were used. Homeowners rewarded volunteers with a BBQ and treats. #FireSmart #IAmFireSmart
The Piers Island FireSmart board and the local FireSmart representative will be working to foster more of this type of volunteerism/homeowner partnership for FireSmart work in 2023.
