GOLETA, CA….Los Padres National Forest officials today announced plans to launch a series of prescribed burn projects over the next several months to eliminate piled brush and mechanically treated vegetation on the Monterey Ranger District.

This process will involve crews burning piles of vegetation in order to remove hazardous fuel loads and improve the overall health of the forest. The project will commence when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safely burning these fuels. The brush was masticated and piled during thinning projects around administrative sites throughout the District over the course of last year.

Burning will begin the week of January 10 and continue through April. If you have questions about the projects, please contact Monterey Fire Management Officer Tom Plymale at (831) 385-5434, ext. 231.
