Spring Yard Cleanup Reminders – burning permits, restrictions on oak cutting, dead timber & brush removal

Planning a little spring cleanup around the yard?  Spring is Wildfire Season in Wisconsin and debris burning is the leading cause of wildfires in Wisconsin.  If you decide to burn, get a free DNR burn permit.  Please see the attached flyer for additional details.  

It’s also important to remember the upcoming oak harvesting guidance to help reduce the spread of oak wilt. Town ordinance adopts the DNR restricted period of harvesting oak trees from April 1 to July 15. Please see the attached oak harvesting guidelines developed from the DNR and refrain from cutting oaks during the restricted season to reduce the spread of oak wilt.
If your property received a dead timber & brush warning letter in spring of last year (2021), we ask that you make arrangements for any dead, diseased or down trees and/or brush to be removed from the property by April 30th. As a high wildfire risk municipality we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping our forest strong and community safe. Thank you!
