Saws & Slaws – We kicked off the 2022 mitigation season this past Saturday.

We asked for help to create defensible space through mitigation of Juanita Kursevich property, and you responded.

Eighteen volunteers fell, limbed, bucked, dragged and stacked slash and fire wood from 27 trees. Their combined efforts totaled 99 hours. Juanita prepared a delicious slow cooked beef for sandwiches, deserts and beverages. No one went away hungry.

Once again, we had volunteers from outside of the Burland Ranchettes; Bailey Mountain, Deer Valley Creek Ranchos, Double S, Roland Valley, and Woodside. Their help is greatly appreciated.

We want to thank Moore Lumber for recognizing and sponsoring the Burland Firewise program. Pine General Manager Terry Walters generously donated four gallons of chainsaw bar oil.

The Saws & Slaws flyer for our next event in May will be posted soon.

Recently we witnessed how quickly the Marshall fire destroyed urban communities. Do you think rural Bailey could suffer the same consequences? We do. Now is a good time to reevaluate our properties. Have you removed the vegetation around all buildings (Zone 1, 0 – 5 feet)? Have you removed tree limbs up 6 – 8 feet, and created 20-foot crown spacing between individual or groups of trees (Zone 2, 5 – 30 feet)? Have you removed tree limbs up 6 – 8 feet, and created 10-foot crown spacing between individual or groups of trees (Zone 3, 30 - 100 feet)? Mitigating our properties now will save the heart ache from regretting the decision not to as it is consumed by fire.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to the Bailey Community and our Volunteers.
