Phase 1 of Fuel Break Work is Moving Right Along

The crew from Hope’s Tree Service was working on Olo Win Trail and Nuke Trail yesterday when I caught up with them.

That means that the larger vegetation has been removed: tree branches, manazanita, larger shrubs within 10 feet from the road on the ground level or 15 feet up, as in tree branches in most areas of Sugar Pine and Mi Wuk.  I’ll get an updated map as soon as possible to show where the Phase I work has been completed.

Here’s some of the Nuka Trail activity yesterday (24th of March):

Say hello to Hope.

HOW MANY POUNDS OF CHIPPINGS DOES THE TRUCK DELIVER TO THE RECYCLER EVERY DAY OR TWO?  Leave your guesses in the comment area and I’ll have the answer for you tomorrow.  My husband gave a way wrong answer.  Crew boss and co-owner of Hope’s Tree Service, Bob, told me before I took a guess.  I think you’ll be surprised.
