What to do with standing burned trees

Here is an article by a tree service business that has some good information for those of you with burned trees.



Straw Wattles

Submitted by Jon Stephens:

I know people have a lot of issues on their minds other than erosion, however FYI, David Buckardt, Construction Supply, 3543 S. Lincoln, Loveland, Tel: 612-0250 will sell 30' straw wattles to fire victims for $25.00 each.  You cannot buy a comparable amount of straw bales for that and they are a lot easier to use and dispose of.
