It’s that time of year to collect leaves, prepare your yard for winter and protect it from the risk of wildfire. Did you know Montreat receives credit for the hours you spend collecting leaves and cleaning up your yard? Every year, we report total community hours worked in order to qualify for our Firewise Renewal Report. So, please report the time that you spend working to clear leaves and debris from your yard to Nancy Midgette ([email protected]). If you need information about how to reduce the risk of wildfire in your yard or how to prune bushes, ask Nancy. She has that information as well. Thanks to Nancy for the excellent and important work she does.
