Saturday- March 28, 2015 - Controlled Burns
The Davy Crockett N.F. will conduct two separate controlled burns on Saturday, March 28. The northernmost burn is in Compartments 33 and 34, north of Kennard, Texas. The southernmost burn is in Compartments 66 and 67 and is located near Baker Springs, Texas adjacent to FM 2781. This burn will require that portions of the Piney Creek Horse Trail be closed for the day. Both burns are to improve red-cockaded woodpecker habitat. With southerly winds, SH 7 and SH 21 may receive some drift smoke. If you encounter smoke while driving in this area, please slow down, use your low beams and drive cautiously.
If you have questions or concerns about this burn, please call the Davy Crockett Ranger District office at 936-655-2299.
