Burning, Carefully, With The Humboldt Prescribed Burn Association
Ashland residents have gotten used to the smoke rising from the hills above town, as the Ashland Forest Resiliency project burns an excess of fuel in the city's watershed. The burning is mostly on public land.
The Humboldt County Prescribed Burn Association is all about coordinating the burning of private lands, for forest health and fire danger reduction.
We get an overview of the association's activities from Dean Hunt, a local rancher and the president. He is joined by Lenya Quinn Davidson, fire expert and member of the Northern California Prescribed Fire Council, and Jeff Stackhouse, a natural resources advisor.
