Prescribed Burn Planned on Save the Redwoods League Property

Arnold, CA...Save the Redwoods League in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) and California State Parks are planning to begin a prescribed burn on or around Friday, June 28, 2019 on its property adjacent to Calaveras Big Trees State Park on the northeast side. The goal is to complete the 20-acre Oak Leaf Spring unit (see yellow polygon on the map below). Ignition is expected to be completed in one day. The 20 acres were previously thinned, reducing the fuel loading and allowing for a safer and more controllable broadcast burn. Much of this work was funded through a Proposition 1 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund grant from CAL FIRE, both agencies of the State of California.





This burn is part of Save the Redwoods League’s stewardship program for vegetation management, hazardous fuel load reduction, and wildlife habitat improvement. Prescribed burns enhance the health of the forest by removing diseased materials, restoring essential nutrients to the soil, and reducing the chance of a catastrophic wildfire. Through forest thinning and reduction of fire fuels, an ecologically healthy forest system can be maintained.
An additional benefit of this prescribed burn includes buffer protection for the State Parks’ South Grove of giant sequoias.

Prescribed burns produce significantly less smoke than wildfires. To minimize the smoke impacts on surrounding communities, burns are planned and coordinated with CAL FIRE and the Tuolumne County Air District. All burning depends on weather and air quality conditions that are favorable for smoke dispersal. If the conditions, such as weather or vegetation are not conducive for burning, the burns will be rescheduled.

Communities near Calaveras Big Trees State Park, including Dorrington, Big Trees Village, White Pines, Blue Lake Spring, and Arnold, may experience smoke from the burning operations. Save the Redwoods League is working with the Tuolumne County Air Pollution Control Districts to limit impacts to smoke sensitive areas.
Both Highway 4 and the Walter W. Smith Parkway will remain open but may experience delays due to smoke and other hazards. Please obey all warning signs.

Questions or comments about the projects or about the stewardship program should be directed to Anthony Castanos at (415) 362-2352.


Event occurs on 06/28/2019 from All Day to .

Lets see,

Its summer and getting hot, will have a hot burn. GOOD

Be careful, sparks travel and my neighbor's pine needles are dry. If you do 20 acres, you only have 3,254,874 left to bun on the highway 4 corridor.

Good luck.

    Get over it! These are controlled burns and the weather is cool right now considering how hot to could be. These people know what they are doing and have to burn to avoid a catastrophic fire. Go crawl back into the hole that you came out of.

      No argument, it could be hotttttter... dryer and BAD. I love a controlled burn, I vote for burning every 10 years or so to keep the DUFF cleaned up.

      They know what they are doing, if you look at lake Alpine when the water is down the old stumps are 50+ feet apart ... now look at the shore 5 feet between trees.

The light up sign in Murphys right before the grade road announced the prescribed burn last week, and said “Do NOT report”.
I think that is a dangerous thing to tell people during this fire season. Sure, you don’t want to be bothered with calls from the few people who may decide to call, but really...
Can we assume that the ONLY smoke we may smell right now is from that one fire? Do we want people to ignore smoke in the middle of the night, and just roll over and try to go back to sleep?
My biggest worry is having to evacuate quickly in the middle of the night, as residents in Napa/Sonoma had to do. I want to have as much time as I can get.

    My biggest worry is my stupid-ass neighbors burning pine needles and not knowing what to do with their escape burn.

    Hopefully the crew that burn along Big Trees park not in charge. Most amateur controlled burn that killed all the tree right next to highway. Maybe instead of promoting. Make the fellas have a little more ground time. Embarrassing.

    I'm totally in favor of controlled burns, but from what I see in the aftermath of this burn, Calfire burned the forest out (killed) over much of the prescribed burn area.
