Citizens for Fire Safe Forests
YES ON MEASURE V
Mendocino County - June 7, 2016
Measure V Passes!
Final tally: county voters approve 62.29% to 37.31%

Citizens for Fire Safe Forests is a group of Mendocino County firefighters and residents working to stop the practice of killing and leaving dead standing trees in our forests. Killing and leaving dead standing trees is a practice done by many companies (especially Mendocino Redwood Company or MRC) and is known as "hack'n'squirt" because the practice involves hacking into and injecting poison into the tree. We believe that intentionally killed standing dead trees pose an unnecessary risk to firefighters, citizens and property.
