BLM Will Burn Slash Piles in French Gulch Area


Crews from the Bureau of Land Management will be burning slash piles near French Gulch beginning Thursday, Oct. 29, and continuing for three days, weather permitting.

The piles are in a 300-acre area covering parts of Big Gulch and Cedar Gulch west of Redding.  They were created in projects designed to improve timber stands and forest health.  Elimination of the slash piles will improve wildfire protection and improve wildlife habitat.

Burning will occur only on permissive burn days, and when weather conditions allow for safe and successful burning.

For more information, contact the BLM Redding Field Office, (530) 224-2100.
