Controlled Burns on SB Ranger District
updated: Apr 03, 2014, 1:41 PM

Source: Los Padres National Forest

Los Padres National Forest officials today announced plans to launch a series of prescribed burn projects over the next several weeks to eliminate piled brush and mechanically treated vegetation on the Santa Barbara Ranger District.

The brush was masticated or cut and piled during vegetation thinning projects around administrative sites throughout the district. The prescribed treatments will involve crews burning the treated vegetation in order to reduce hazardous fuel build up and to improve the health of the forest. The projects will occur only when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safe burning.

The project locations are at various administrative sites throughout the Santa Barbara District, with the bulk of the work to be done on the Lower Santa Ynez Recreation Area.
