District 34 Residents-Rural Fire Safety Tips

Wildfires do not respect property lines! Share this information with your neighbors and consider creating a neighborhood wildfire prevention and evacuation plan.
Firefighters need your help. Beware of accidentally starting a wildfire!
Survivable Space.  This area surrounds your home for at least 30 feet, reducing fuels and providing space for fire fighting equipment.
Plants should be carefully spaced and fire resistant.

Zone 2  In the next 20 feet keep trees 10 feet apart. For trees taller than 18 feet, prune lower branches within 10 feet of the ground.
Zone 3 In the next 50 feet thin trees to a spacing that leaves plenty of room for canopy growth. Remove highly flammable vegetation such as
dead or dying trees and shrubs.
Zone 4 This zone is furthest from structures. Thin selectively to maintain healthy tree growth.

OUR WONDERFUL
BACK YARD

Ames Lake Forest owned by Green Crow is an amazing area for our neighborhood. Please respect the rules they have posted for use!

Newcomers to our wonderful neighborhood have asked how you find the Tree Farm or “Ames Lake Forest”:


At the north end of Ames Lake from Ames Lake Drive NE by the green gate with the Green Crow sign, hike up the gravel road through a previously logged area, now replanted with Douglas firs to access the trails on the west side of the forest.


Residents have expressed concern about evidence of campfires as well as motorized vehicles on this privately owned land.


Here is a reminder of the rules:

  • Private property - Please respect us!

  • Do not block gates

  • Non-motorized daily recreation allowed, unless otherwise posted

  • Use at your own risk

  • No fires, no camping, no woodcutting, no shooting, and no littering allowed

  • Violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law

  • The privilege of entry may be revoked at any time
