On shorter trees, only the lower 1/3 of the branches need be removed. Why is this needed? Most fires originate along the surface. If there is sufficient space between the fire and the lower branches of trees, there is less chance that the trees will ignite. Be sure to remove as much fuel as yoia can under the trees. If the tree foliage catches fire, we have a "crown fire," which is almost impossible to extinguish. The smart thing to do is reduce the possibility of surface fires getting into the 'ree fo- liage in the first place. Make sure that ALL of your trees have been properly limbed up, such that you can walk under the trees without having to duck. You only have to do this once; the lower limbs won't grow back.

CItP REPORT Broken leg on ATV, Aug. 7 At approximately 7:55 p.m., Tyler Buchanan, 19, of Chester, was driving a 2004 Yamaha ATV on a dirt road on private property south of Forest Service Road 27N80. For an unknown reason, according to the California Highway Patrol report, Buchanan allowed his left leg to go under the ATV as he hit a bump in the road.

Collision with stopped traffic, Aug. 8 At 9:15 a.m., James Mun- jar, 59, of Janesville, Was driving a 1972 Kenworth towing a 1968 Miller flatbed loaded with a construction dozer west on Highway 70, within the westbound lane, at 15 - 20 mph. He was just east of Highway 89 (Greenville Wye). William Perkins, 59, of Quincy, was driving a 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon west on Highway 70, within the westbound lane, and was stopped due to traffic control set up for roadway construc- tion just east of the Wye and west of the Kenworth. There were five to six ve- hicles stopped behind the VW, also due to the con- struction. According to the CHP report, as Munjar ap- proached the stopped vehi- cles, he attempted to apply the brakes of his Kenworth; however, due to the steep de- clining roadway and the weight of the load he was towing, he was unable to stop in time to avoid collid- ing with the vehicles in front of him. In an attempt to avoid a collision, Munjar steered the Kenworth to the right into a drainage ditch and began passing several, vehicles, un- til he struck the ascending rock embankment to his right. The truck continued passing vehicles westbound until the left front of the truck struck the right rear of the VW, causing moderate damage to both vehicles. After the collision, the truck came to a stop against the VW within the west- bound lane and the north dirt drainage ditch. After the scene became stable, CHP was notified of the col- lision, and responded to in- vestigate. CHP conducted a Level 1 vehicle inspection of the, Kenworth and its trailer and determined that its brakes were in Working order and were not an asso- ciated factor in the collision.
