Creek Fire Services
Helping Land Owners and Businesses with the Clean Up Process
The Creek Fire is now the largest single wildfire in California's history! The devastation the Creek Fire continues to leave behind has affected many individuals, land-owners, homes, businesses, and livelihoods in the surrounding communities, and has destroyed an untold number of acres of grassland, forest, chaparral, and other natural habitats.
The lack of thinning or havesting in dense forest stands increases the threat of fires, endangering wildlife and habitats, and will often result in hotter more destructive fires.
At Pioneeer Logging, we are committed to providing land-owners and businesses with the assistance, services, and support that you may need at this difficult time.
