TexAmericas Center will be conducting prescribed burns on TAC-E property in the Hooks and New Boston area. The burning is expected to begin the week of February 6, 2017 and continue through April 30, 2017 and will be done as weather permits. The prescribed burns are being conducted on the forested areas to reduce fire fuel, control underbrush, protecting the property and neighbors from potential wildfires and improve wildlife habitat and timber stand improvements. Required agencies will be notified each day of the burns. Prior to these control burns all of the existing fires lanes were also restored to restrict the fires to designated areas. Additional fires lanes were installed by the forestry contractor performing the burns. We regret any inconvenience the smoke may cause to our neighbors.
