Fire on the Mountain

February 19, 2016

Several weeks ago the NC Forest Service along with Brushy Mountain Volunteer Fire Department conducted a site preparation burn on a client’s land in the Brushy Mountains. The site was sprayed with herbicide in August. The fire was the final step in getting the site ready to plant.
