Notes from the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission

Prescribed burn season proposed for spring, summer and fall 2003: This year the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission has scheduled a potential of 112 days to conduct prescribed burns. The 2003 burn windows are proposed to be April 14 to May 24, July 7 to August 31 and September 29 to October 18. This is the largest number of potential burn days in a year since the prescribed fire program was established in 1991. Spring and fall burns will focus on more forested areas, while summer burns will focus on areas containing more shrub-dominated pine barrens habitat, with 23 units covering over 270 acres. — Reprinted from the Pine Bush Update, April 2003
