The first attempt at burning the ESAs on Friday was unsuccessful.  The ESA areas are not far enough into their dormancy for them to burn effectively.  The amount of smoke coming from the ESA in this picture shows there is too much moisture in them to burn the way we need them to.

We consult with a company called Pizzo and Associates for all of our management of these areas, and this company also performs the burn.  We will continue to monitor these areas to decide when an appropriate time will be.  After the rain this past weekend, it will most likely be spring before the ESAs will be ready.
