On Saturday, April 21 Forest Rangers from the Maine Forest Service came to Peaks to give a presentation about wildfire risk on Peaks Island. The biggest risk for Peaks was identified as a lack of defensible space at many of the homes assessed. To create such a defensible space, trees and shrubs growing up against or very near the house should be trimmed back or removed. Homeowners are urged to walk around the outside of their home to see if they have a clear area around it that would resist fire and from which firemen could defend against an approaching wildfire.

Dedicated to the acquisition, preservation and stewardship
of Peaks Island lands since 1994.
