Los Padres Forest To Conduct Controlled Burns

Forest_ServiceThe Los Padres National Forest is planning to launch a series of prescribed burn projects over the next several months to eliminate piled brush on the Mt. Pinos Ranger District.

The brush was cut and piled while constructing fuel breaks around local communities. This process will involve crews lighting piled brush when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safely burning these fuels.

The project locations are adjacent to Pine Mountain Club, Frazier Park, and Lake of the Woods.
