Document Description
Conduct yearly controlled debris pile burns to germinate serotinous bishop pine seed cones in three (3) areas of Patrick's Point State Park to prevent the extirpation of the existing stands of bishop pine (pinus muricata) within the park. In areas near the campfire center, Bishop Pine Day Use Area, and the Agate Beach Campground Loop, work will construct 10'x10' burn piles on top of existing native plants and shrubs using plant debris obtained through regularly occurring maintenance activities from within Patrick's Point State Park or nearby State Beaches/Park, and/or locally available firewood. Place the bishop pinecones in burn piles and cover with wax paper or plastic tarps to keep piles dry. Pile will be burned in the winter with no more than 5 piles burned per years.
