Fire lines

On the Monti Pisani

Fires are undoubtedly one of the main problems afflicting the Monti Pisani chain; many are the result of a lack of care on the part of tourists and trippers, but others are clearly started deliberately. The dry conditions in the summer, the light breezes in these mountains in all seasons, and the inaccessibility of the area contribute to the difficulty of controlling and extinguishing fires. For this reason, a number of 'tracks' have been opened up in the last few decades to function as fire lines. These enable fire-fighting equipment to reach the affected area and also form barriers which make it easier to bring fires under control.
