Kick-off of the Apache County Stewardship in Greer
Apache County crews working this project are being instructed in safety associated with the cutting perimeters and flagging work, instruction into the proper and safe techniques of chainsaw operations, how to fall timber, bunking and lopping down timber and selection of trees to be fell, as they kicked-off the Apache County Stewardship Project in Greer. After the first few days of training, and a few more hours of hard work, you can see the stark comparison and proof that this project will be of benefit to the homes and community in which the forest is literally right out their back yards. This project will benefit Greer residents and the community in thinning areas that are overpopulated with dry trees and overgrowth, help in restoration of our forest health and wildfire prevention. The Forest Service is overseeing this project along with Doyel Shamley, Apache County Natural Resource Coordinator, and Brannon Eagar, Chief Deputy Apache County Sheriff's Office, Apache Sitgreaves National Forest - Springerville Ranger District - Fire and Fuels Team.
