Mountain Ranch, CA – After the recent stormy weather hampered Butte Fire burnt tree clearing efforts two additional cutting and hauling teams are on the job.
As reported here, the heavy rains kept crews from the job for all but eleven days last month but Calaveras County officials expect that with the added crews the project will be back on schedule.
Currently, cutting crews are downing trees on Jesus Maria, Worden, West Murry Creek and Cave City roads. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. with no equipment used before 6 a.m. The county reports that to date 1,784 hazard trees have been removed and 2,656 cubic yards of slash and logs have been hauled from both public and private properties. All logs and slash are picked up by the hauling crews and taken to Wallace for processing.
