A group of homeowners on Bear Mountain in Evergreen has applied for a 2009 wildland-urban interface grant from the Colorado State Forest Service to help mitigate fire danger in their mountaintop neighborhood of 200 homes.
The idea is to join forces and launch a war against dead and diseased trees and to identify trees to be thinned. Participants use their own equipment and volunteer time and muscle power.
The proposal also asks for funds to educate people on FireWise principles of home protection.
