Scheduled State Burn Will Produce More Smoke Than All The Outside Wood Boilers In PA

PATTON TOWNSHIP — Three 95-acre parcels on State Game Land 176 in Patton Township are scheduled to be burned between March 8 and May 8, the state Game Commission said Thursday.

The three parcels — one targeted for a burn that didn't happen last year and the properties on each side of it — will be burned on three separate days during the two-month period, most likely on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, officials said.

Bill Capouillez, the commission’s bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management, said that the controlled burns will reduce the possibility of an uncontrolled wildfire impacting the surrounding developed communities.

He said this year goal is to burn the periphery buffer area between the surrounding residential developments and the high fuel loads on the game lands.

“This buffer burn area must be completed first in order to reduce the fuel load closest to the nearby homes, while also creating a much larger safety barrier for our interior burn areas that will begin in 2011,” Capouillez said in a prepared statement. More...

Wheres the Board that wants to regulate outside wood burners on this? Air quality is air quality, no matter where the smoke comes from. OH I forgot , it is the State of Pa. they are exempt & can do whatever they want, whenever they want?

This would make too much sense:

SELL to MAKE money permits to cut firewood on the parcels that will be burnt by the controlled burns.

Rendell could draw in thousands of dollars to help Pennsylvania's short fall in revenue. With the PROPOSED sales tax on firewood, he could pull in even more money.

Screw his proposed sales tax on firewood, it will not fly! Firewood is an unfinished good, it is NOT manufacutred.

Like your idea about selling to make money from the cutting of trees and permits. Unless you are qualified and certified in SFI everyday people would not be allowed on state forest land to cut their own wood. It is a good idea but regulations are regulations.

I don't see why they couldn't sell permits to cut on State Forest land. They sell permits for Allegheny National Forest, They just have restrictions on what and where you can and cannot cut.
