Sandpine Alliance team members were hard at work once again, this time protecting communities in Florida and Georgia from the 150,000+ acre wildfire that originated in Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Providing peace of mind to local families and protecting their adjoining acreage was of utmost importance. Thousands of acres of timber forests are the life bread for landowners. Many timber stands essentially serve them for retirement funding or are the fuel for college tuition.
When we arrived on scene the wildfire containment was at a mere 12% and facing severe fire weather conditions. It was with pride and pleasure working long, record hot days that we contributed to this Wildfire’s current 65% containment status.
