When you live in a fire forest, you must burn every few years. We caught up on about 23 acres of burning of piney woods, seepage slope, and swamp. All this was inside concentric rings of firebreaks, with no danger of it escaping off our property.
Don’t worry, for the wildlife there are plenty of brambles and woods and swamp unburned this year. More next year. And quail, gopher tortoises, and other wildlife don’t like the woods too thick anyway.
For why we burn, see previous post.
We do not now, nor have we ever, lived in Valdosta.
But we did get that rainbarrel from Valdosta Stormwater.
We didn’t intend to burn all the way to the swamp, but the fire did.
We already burned around the house, so there was little danger there, because not much for a new fire to burn.
But better safe than sorry, so I moved these vehicles.
The dogs declined to help.
