Thanks I edited my two threads. Sometimes the error comes from me rushing to type my thoughts and from auto-correct, but for the most part is happens because I am not that petty of a person. I usually catch my misspelled words and correct them when I reread my threads.BTW, the CORRECT spelling is W.R.I.T.E. ......not right, as in right a letter (as posted several times earlier in this thread)
There is no such thing as protecting the natural resources of the Pine Barrens from a catastrophic fire. It is in fact how they are created in the first place.I assure you that each and every one of the will give you the same answers....Protect our natural resources from catastrophic fire.
Yeah, I have a comment. What a tragedy to break up the pine plains wilderness like that. But I knew that the Forest Fire service had made their big play for that action right after the Warren Grove Fire, so there was no stopping the State's intentions. They had the local politicians and people who lived in the trailer park on their side.All this was done by huge machines that I'm certain destroyed many plants and animal habitat. Not a peep. Any comments????
Star Tree, I respectfully disagree with that assessment. Nothing...and I mean nothing the fire service did had any affect on the direction that fire took. That fire was out of control and hotter than the hinges of hell's gate. Look at the 95 map again. Bamber was saved by Cedar Creek and the lake. Your center yellow triangle was overrun. The fire probably skimmed the tree tops in that triangle and blew burning embers hundreds of yards across it. As far as the yellow shade on the east side, I really belive the wind and the road helped the fire turn.I’ve attached a photo of the April 1995 fire that burned in Lacey and Manchester Townships. Areas that were prescribed burned in March of that year are colored in yellow. That burning effectively prevented the communities of Bamber Lake and Timber Green from being burned over.
