High Fire Danger

April 29, 2013 Charlie Leigus

Spring has arrived and mulching season is in full swing. Along with the  sunshine and warm weather comes the threat of uncontrolled fires that can be detrimental to forests. Leaf litter that accumulates through the fall becomes very dry at this time of the year and is prone to rapidly spreading fires. Please remember to take care to completely extinguish all outside fires before leaving them unattended!
