Slash burning set for Tuesday at Pinewood Reservoir

If you see smoke coming from the foothillls west of Loveland Tuesday, there’s nothing to worry about. The Larimer County Natural Resources plans to burn slash piles at Pinewood Reservoir. All the snow means its the perfect time for crews to thin the dense stands of trees. According to natural resources officials, clearing the trees reduces wildfire threats, improves habitats for wildlife and removes trees that have been damaged by insects or disease.
