Stanislaus National Forest Plans Prescribed Burn on Calaveras Ranger District

Hathaway Pines, CA...The Stanislaus National Forest provides the following information about planned prescribed burns on the forest. Prescribed Fire Name / Ranger District: Moore-Bellfour Underburn, Calaveras Ranger District. General and Specific Location: Project area is located along Forest Road 7N09 (Cabbage Patch Road) south of Salt Springs Reservoir. Township 7 North, Range 16 East, Section 12 Smoke may be visible from Hwy. 4 and in the surrounding communities. Fire managers are working closely with local air districts and the California Air Resources Board to mitigate the effects of smoke on the public. To view the project map, visit the News & Events section of the forest website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/stanislaus/.




This project is a planned prescribed burn. Please do not report as a wildfire.

Projected Duration: The prescribed burn may begin Sept. 12 and continue through fall as long as conditions allow. Burning is contingent on weather, fuel moisture, and air quality. All burning is monitored and conducted in accordance with state and county air quality guidelines and closely coordinated with local county air quality control districts

Planned Size of Prescribed Burn: Project area includes between 300 and 800 acres. Burn units may be ignited in blocks throughout the fall. The size of these blocks will vary based on environmental conditions and smoke production.

Type of Prescribed Burn: Underburn

Burn Project Objectives: Prescribed low-intensity fires enhance wildlife habitat, protect and maintain water quality and soil productivity, improve forest ecosystem health, and reduce the threat of uncontrolled conflagrations. The Sierra Nevada is a fire dependent ecosystem, where fire is a critical part of the natural forest process and helps to maintain resilient forests.

Public Benefits: Prescribed burning is an effective, cost efficient method of reducing the buildup of flammable forest fuels, both ground fuels and ladder fuels; reducing the threat of uncontrolled, large and damaging wildland fires and improving firefighting capabilities.

I might be in the dark, but who was the genius that lit the fire in Big Trees and basically scorched everything along hiway 4! Looks to me like it burned into the crowns and nearly killed everything in it's path!

We have taken the wrong path.

I have Native American and American Pioneer ancestry, I am a 5th generation Californian. I ask you, my community to consider my (and my families) way of life, observations and thoughts.

These actions, and the very thinking of burning up the forests is nothing more than ignorance. Utter and complete destruction and devastation to the ecosystems of these areas. Unlike the way people try to live today, early people, my ancestors included were dependent on their natural environments. Out of necessity to survive, they lived, hunted, and foraged in areas that would most completely sustain their lives. They never intentionally destroyed their very way of life with fire or anything else. To burn and destroy, destroying everything in the path of that fire would ultimately put their very lives in danger of existence. Destruction of the complex physical, chemical, and biotic factors (such as climate, soil, and living things) that act upon an organism or an ecological community and ultimately determine its form and survival is unconscionable.

There are those who try to brainwash us to the thought that fire is good for the forests, trees, brush, plants, all the animals and people. However those of us living long enough to observe and exist in the great loss in the destruction of air quality, beauty, forest products, forage, water quality, and the wildlife, know different and have to live otherwise. I observe every day how the Butte Fire has changed our environment, it has not made it better. There is great loss of wildlife that has taken place. The balance of flora and fauna is forever changed here.

Greater minds are needed to ensure a balance of all things and life in the future. Great human error has taken place here. This is not a path we should continue to take. Selective cutting and thinning and using the products to better the earth, is a far better and non-toxic option than the thinking of treating fire, with more fire.
