2017 FIRE INSPECTIONS INFORMATION:
A letter from our very own VIP Fire Prevention Officer for 2017 Fire Safety Inspections for our Association.
  
This year, VIP Inspections will take place later than usual, due to the large amount of storm debris and slash from tree removal operations. 
FIRST INSPECTIONS:  July 12 through July 19
SECOND INSPECTIONS:  August 20 through August 27
As of this date, the following facilities will accept forest debris:
  • Rowley's (Camp Connell) Open mid-May to end of June.(209) 795-6500
  • Gene Miller (Avery)
        Branches/slash only. NO PINE NEEDLES.(209) 795-4875
  • Red Hill Transfer Station (Vallecito)(209) 736-6891
  • Rock Creek Landfill (Milton)(209) 785-4158  


If you decide to burn your debris, please observe the following: 
--Obtain a burn permit in person from Cal Fire:
2517 Highway 4, Arnold
(209) 795-0918

--Right before you burn, call the following number for information on burn days. You can only burn on authorized days:  (209) 795-6600

--Before burning, clear a circle 20 feet in diameter around the burn site. Make sure there are no branches overhanging the burn site from nearby trees.

--Burn piles must be no more than 4 feet in diameter.

--Keep a garden hose, a shovel, and a fire extinguisher close by.

--Be a good neighbor: BURN ONLY DEAD AND DRY DEBRIS. Wet or green debris causes thick smoke pollution which can be harmful, especially to people with respiratory conditions.

BARK BEETLE INFESTATION

THE BARK BEETLE: This little critter is the most destructive insect in the coniferous forest of the West and Southwest. This document will teach you and your family how to recognize it and what you can do to protect your trees that have not been attacked. Sadly, there is nothing you can do for the ones that have already been attacked. Very important: Do not save the wood from an infested tree or pole for use as firewood!




CALAVERAS COUNTY ADDED TO THE PRIORITY FOR DEAD TREE REMOVAL

Calaveras County on Monday was one of several counties added to the priority list for Gov. Jerry Brown’s Tree Mortality Task Force. See here.
