In this age of drought and yearly fire seasons and resulting dangerous smoke we all have to breathe. Can the vineyard owners not find a more enlightened way to get rid of piles and piles of old grapevines besides burning?
Every day there is smoke from the endless pyres on Leveroni Road filling the neighborhood with that PTSD-triggering smell, burning the eyes and lungs as we drive by. Can’t a wood chipper do that work? Enough smoke already!
