Fuel mitigation for woodlot and community forest anticipated for late June
Fuel mitigation plans are underway in the 100 Mile House District woodlot and community forest. Approval letters from the Forest Enhancement Society of B.C. have been received for funding to initiate fire mitigation action planning in Woodlot #577 and 100 Mile Community Forest and the District and the 100 Mile Development Corporation are awaiting the Recipient Agreement to be signed prior to commencing work, according to a release. On the ground treatments are anticipated to start as early as late June. The desired outcome is to create fuel breaks to give better fire mitigation and increased fire protection for 100 Mile House, the forest and woodlot itself as well as cell tower infrastructure.
