Controlled Burns Scheduled for Fall

Forestry Crew to Burn Slash Piles

During the fall season, the Tahoe Donner Association forestry department will once again be burning piles of vegetative debris throughout the property. The department has obtained two separate permits that allow us to burn material. A project burn permit has been obtained from Truckee Fire Protection District (TFPD), which gives us permission to burn numerous, larger piles than allowed under the residential burn permit. An additional air pollution permit has been obtained from the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District. This permit provides guidelines on which days to burn large piles with proper air dispersion to avoid affecting the local population.

Download PDF map.

Before TDA forestry crews burn piles on any given day, we notify TFPD, CAL FIRE, US Forest Service and any agency that may see or be affected by the burning operation. Locally, TDA’s Member Services Office will have a list of the daily burning locations. At the burn site, signs will be posted notifying passersby of the operation.

The concentrated areas of burning to be completed include: Bennett Flat Road, Tundra Drive/KT Court, Falcon Point Place/Muhlebach Way, Northwoods Boulevard/Chamonix Road, Skislope Way, Cristallina Way and Euer Valley.
