Prescribed burning has begun in New Jersey

I thought that with the slightly warmer temperatures coupled with the fact that the so far small amount of snow that we have received here in New Jersey means that there is at least a window of opportunity for the New Jersey Forest Service to being prescribed burning. Early indications are that there may be a snow fall on Wednesday into Thursday of at least a few inches, and there is still the rest of February and early March left, so winter is by no means over in New Jersey. So perhaps this prescribed burning window will be short lived??

According to the Facebook post from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service that I embedded above prescribed burns for February 6th are taking place in the following areas:
  • Six Mile Run State Park, Franklin Twp.
  • Wharton State Forest, Shamong Twp., Washington Twp., Tabernacle Twp., 
  • Greenwood Wildlife Management Area, Lacey Twp.
  • Brendan T. Byrne SF, Pemberton, Woodland Twp., Burlington County, Manchester Twp.
  • Buckshutem Wildlife Management Area, Fairfield Twp.
  • Millville Wildlife Management Area, Commercial Twp.
  • Peaslee Wildlife Management Area, Maurice River Twp.
  • Vineland City municipal property
Thanks to the crews of the New Jersey Forest Fire Service who are conducting these prescribed burns!
