Pennsylvania Game Commission will be instituting the use of controlled burns in the Firetower area on SGL 37 (Mid State Trail Section 19 in northern Tioga County), possibly spring or fall 2018, depending on weather and staff availability. On the other hand, it may not happen until next year. For SGL 37, the burns will utilize the various roads as firebreaks and the goal is a leaf litter burn to invigorate oak regeneration. You can follow the burn dates on our PGC website: PGC prescribed fire information link (2/18)
