Slash Pit

Good morning folks,

We have been getting some inquiries regarding slash pit. First of all, "thank you" to all of you that have been Spring cleaning your property in preparation for the upcoming fire season.

If you want to hire Howard Fegan (575) 829-3031 to chip your slash, be aware that he will be getting the county chipper in mid-to-late-May. His rate is $35.00 per 3' X 3' pile.

The Thompson Ridge slash pit will open in early May, and I will pass on that information from Forest Service as soon as I get it.

Slash at SLPPOA

Please, everyone, no slash is to be dumped at the firebarn. The pit has been closed for several years. What you currently see at the firebarn is not authorized.
