Cal Fire & SPI Conducting Prescribed Burn Near Big Trees State Park Starting Nov. 11th

Arnold, CA...The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), in cooperation with Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI), will be conducting a prescribed burning operation near the southern boundary of Big Trees State Park. This project is located east of Arnold in Calaveras County.





This prescribed burn is designed to reduce ground level fuels, creating a more fire resilient environment as well as improving the forest health and habitat.

The prescribed burning will commence Monday, November 11th at 09:00 am and will continue through the day Wednesday, November 13th, as the prescription allows. Burning will primarily be done during daylight hours, however some fire activity will be visible at night and smoke will be present for several days following.

Resources assigned to the VMP will consist of fire engines, fire crews, bulldozers and water tenders from the various cooperating agencies.

Thank you SPI for continually caring for our forest lands.
Handling the forest is basically the same as caring for our farmed lands. Yes, a plowed and disced field looks bad for a while but then the crops prosper. Clear cut and burn is sometimes necessary.

      It's good to see people appreciating SPI for the good work that they do. I've been reading, even John Buckley is subscribing to good forestry.

        Good forestry, along with good PG&E hopefully soon!!! Both are critically
        important - and notable that most of our forests are US Forestry land, yes US government!!

I called the fire department when my house filled with smoke in Hathaway Pines Wed. night and was told the Big Trees Park prescribed burn was going on, but this says it starts Monday. So what has been the source of all this smoke this week?
I have to ask...is this really the best time to be starting fires? Right after everyone is on such high alert and worried about potential fires with the extremely low humidity, dry conditions and power outages? Please explain. Maybe it can’t wait and it helps keep us safer? I know they are careful and look at wind conditions etc...
