    May we never forget and continue to learn. Trees and grass grow back, houses get rebuilt. Tell your wives, kids, husbands, moms and dads ect that you love em.

    The schaeffer fire is going nuts right now. Looks like it has at least doubled in size yesterday afternoon from 4600 acres.

    The Whittier fire destroyed Boy Scout Camp Rancho Alegre yesterday. I taught a chainsaw safety class there in March for National Camp School. thenaturephotgragher.com has pics from the fire.

    Bummer, man. I always hate to see that stuff happen, and always have to gripe that the public has no idea what goes into fire suppression, and the gub mint always sees fuels reduction as an expense rather than as an asset.

    RX-301/RX-341 this week. Brutal! In a classroom with a tweaked knee while fires pop up all over? No fair!

    I have 6 acres of Norway pines along the road front property line. I'm always worried some jackass will throw a lit cig out the window during early spring or dry season. what can I do to protect the 25 year old stand? How high should I trim the limbs or won't that help?

    The fuels below the trees are a fair piece more critical than the trees themselves. Keep grass short underneath them, and don't let dry leaf litter accumulate. If you're growing them as timber, a pruning prescription may be a sound silvicultural decision as well as a good decision contributing to a Firewise community. Here, have a look.

    I mentioned leaf litter accumulation. That's always a concern.
