Our annual spring cleanup day is scheduled for Saturday, June 1st, at 9:00am. Please meet at the corral for work review and assignments. Bring shovels and chain saws if you have them available.
The DNR will again assist us with cleanup efforts and reduction of fire hazards by chipping wood piles that have been prepared through our cleanup work. DNR chipping dates will be posted once they are known.
As a reminder: DNR will only work on piles that have been properly stacked. Stacks must be near the road or your driveway. Do not extend stacks into the bar ditches or BSR roads so as to not hinder traffic or any necessary road work. Wood must be stacked in parallel formation. Do not cut logs into short pieces. Longer logs allow for more efficient work and cleanup. Stacking similar diameter pieces together will also help the crew be more efficient. Chippings will be left near your pile.
The pictures below show how the wood needs to be stacked: larger diameter end facing the road for easy access and handling. If not properly stacked, the DNR crews may bypass your property. Several property owners have already stacked wood close to the roads. Now is a good time to begin if you have not already started cleaning your property and stacking wood in preparation for the chipping project. Don’t forget to file a NFP In-Kind Form for work done outside of our Annual Cleanup (we’ll do the tracking for work done with the group during the Cleanup).
