Stanislaus National Forest Plans Prescribed Fire on Summit Ranger District

Sonora, CA...The following is information regarding a prescribed burn planned on the Stanislaus National Forest. Prescribed Fire Name / Ranger District: Dry Meadow Underburn, Summit Ranger District. General and Specific Location: Located approximately 6 miles NE of Pinecrest, along Forest Road 5N02, in the vicinity of Dry Meadow Fire Station, Township 5N, Range 17E. Please do not report as a wildland fire.




Projected Duration: The prescribed burn is expected to begin the week of May 21, 2018, and continue through June as long as conditions allow. Burning is contingent on weather, fuel moisture and air quality. All burning is monitored and conducted in accordance with state and county air quality guidelines and closely coordinated with local county air quality control districts.

Planned Size of Prescribed Burn: Up to 1,090 acres will be treated with low-intensity fire, with ignition of approximately 50 to150 acres planned daily. The daily burn area will vary based on environmental conditions and smoke production.

Type of Prescribed Burn: Underburn

Burn Project Objectives: The goal of this prescribed burn is to enhance public and firefighter safety by reducing the build-up of dead and down fuels and to reduce the threat of high-intensity wildfire while protecting watershed values and wildlife habitat by creating a mosaic pattern of vegetation.



Public Benefits: Prescribed burning is an effective, cost efficient method of reducing flammable forest fuels, improving firefighting capabilities, and reducing the impacts of large uncontrolled damaging wildland fires.

The mission of the U.S. Forest Service, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world. Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute more than $13 billion to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands provide 20 percent of the nation's clean water supply, a value estimated at $7.2 billion per year. The agency has either a direct or indirect role in stewardship of about 80 percent of the 850 million forested acres within the U.S., of which 100 million acres are urban forests where most Americans live.

I hate to say it but the Left run Forest Circus has to explain every thing they do, as tho they can keep what they call a prescribed burn under control like the flame on you range at home! Case in point FORESTA, supposed to be a prescribed burn the CIRCUS lit it, and it burned for weeks! The Circus is run by Leftists, the good old day's of going out and getting anything done is run by people for the most part that have little Orr no experience, kinda like Barry as Preident! There are some good mainline workers at the CIRCUS, but they are few and far between!

    If the Fire gets out of control, you can rely on the little Republican red diarrhea Ripple to put it out. A constant stream flows the Republican Party, so don't worry any out-of-control Burns can be taken care of by Trump and his mouth spewing little red Ripple.
