| Zephyr Crew's Glenbrook Project Wins TRPA "Best in Basin" Award
May 14, 2013 (08:40:00)
During 2012 homeowners in the Logan Creek community approached the Fire District about the heavy fuels in the community. They noted that the U.S. Forest Service was working on their land. But the lots in Logan Creek are so steep, and the soils so loose, that removing vegetation cut during defensible space treatments was nearly impossible. So the Fire District agreed to complete the defensible space work and then pile burn the resulting slash if the community could put together a complete project that addressed both the individual hazard and hazard to the community. In the end, 15 of 19 homeowners joined together and completed defensible space and now the piles are curing so that they can be burned in the fall of 2013. The project illustrates that even when there are physical barriers to completing defensible space work there is always a way to get the work done.
