USDA Forest Service officials of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests announced that, weather conditions permitting, the Conasauga Ranger District is conducting several controlled burns on the following units over the next several days in the Trion and Summerville area:

Hammond Gap 60 acres - 5 miles WNW of Trion
Narrows 40 acres - 5 miles W of Trion
Storey Mill 97 acres - 5 miles SE of Summerville

Several burn units include longleaf pine plantings that are several years old, which require periodic burning. The controlled burns will occur on the Armuchee unit, which resides in the Ridge and Valley Landscape. This low-lying region is characterized by a series of narrow, steep ridges separated by wide, flat valleys. Its diverse habitats contain many unique species of terrestrial and aquatic flora and fauna, including mountain longleaf pine.
