The Oregon Department of Forestry want neighbors to know that even though we had a wet spring, it is dry out now and with the heat and wind we are experiencing fires.
People should be careful with any kind of ignition source, even lawn mowing.
When the fire danger is ‘High’ mowing dry grass is NOT allowed between the hours of 10 am and 8 pm on ODF protected lands.
However, the time you are allowed to mow, run chainsaws, and a few other things fluctuates with the fire danger.
Attached is a document that does a great job of explaining 2017 DFPA Public Use Restrictions.
