Are you clear cutting my property?

No. The program focuses on reducing surface and ladder fuels, which in the event of a wild land fire, promotes crown replacing fires that move rapidly and are difficult to contain. The program typically modifies a forested stand structure by cutting under story, suppressed vegetation up to 6 inch diameter material. The program would like to promote large fire resistant trees that are native to our ecosystem. The desired future condition in a forested stand is one where a fire event would burn on the surface, be easy to control, and not cause mortality to the over story tree species.
