Balcones Canyonlands #2, Notes from Blew Crew

January 2020

This week we worked on creating shaded fuel breaks at Balcones Canyonland Preserve. We removed low limbs and small diameter trees under the canopy, focusing specifically on Ashe Juniper and Live Oak species. This work was done with the goal of preventing the possible spread of fire between the natural preserve land and resident properties or roads. The cut brush was then chipped and spread to be less than two inches in depth to avoid creating piles of fuel.
