Burning juniper slash piles

PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- In addition to burning piles down by La Pine this week, Prineville BLM fire crews plan to burn 100 acres of piles southwest of Prineville over the next several days.

The piles are located south of Reservoir Road, about four miles east of the 4-Corners junction on Millican Road.

The piles are made up of needles and small woody debris left over from a juniper woodcutting area.

No road closures are expected, officials said, and the burn will be signed to let travelers know about the project.

All pile-burning projects are weather dependent, as crews need to have the right conditions to allow the piles to burn completely without having the fire spread beyond the actual pile.

  1. DANG!!! I would love to bring this debate up with Barney and the instant blame of “CLIMATE CATASTROPHE” for the Australian fires. As I told Barney and other (not so respectable) people the bush fires are HUMAN caused and not the effect of “global REEEEEEE.” Forest management has been ignored for decades. But I know nothing. I didn’t drink the Flavor Aid of global REEEEE.
