Controlled burn leaves scar
They did it again. The “perfect control burn” at Beaver Valley left behind more than ashes. Many of the remaining trees have been scorched by the brush pile fires, leaving ugly, brown trees standing. It turned the forest at the entry into Beaver Valley into an eyesore. Terrible!
When will the forest department learn? Earlier, they left the “control burn” of the forest across Mesa del at Shoofly looking like the remains of a forest fire. Don’t they know it will take many years for the forest to recover? They should go back and cut down the trees they killed. It’s an eyesore.
The solution is so simple. Stack the burn piles away from the remaining trees so they are not scorched and killed by the brush pile fires. Let’s see if the forest department has learned any lessons.
