Beginning Wednesday, the Ochoco National Forest is planning a prescribed burn for the Crooked River National Grassland to reduce the number of juniper trees on the landscape. In the news release, spokesperson Lisa Clark says the burn should take about two weeks. It's planned for land on the east side of Haystack Reservoir and north of Forest Service Road 9610. During the first phase of the burn, fuels specialists will burn a "blackline" around the perimeter of the 1500 acres. Smoke will be visible from Highways 97 and 26 in Madras and Crooked River Ranch communities and Smith Rock State Park.
