BTNF plans spring prescribed burns near Pinedale (posted 5/21/17)
Near Sylvan Bay Summer Home area
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Bridger-Teton National Forest is planning to conduct a prescribed burn near the Sylvan Bay Summer Home Area on the Pinedale Ranger District at the end of May or beginning of June.

The Sylvan Bay Road prescribed burn is a 126-acre unit consisting of light slash, which is branches and tree limbs, and ground fuels, which is low lying shrubs and vegetation, in a Douglas fir stand. The area is located just east of the Fremont Lake Campground and south of Sylvan Bay Summer Homes.

Fuels will be hand ignited using drip torches with crews working along the road and engines will be shuttling water from the boat launch area to water tanks at the burn site. There will be no closures but traffic along the Sylvan Bay road may have wait times to provide for firefighter safety. Fire Managers expect to have most of the ignition operations completed in one or two days.

The Sylvan Bay Road prescribed burn, part of the Skyline Wildland Urban Interface Fuels Reduction Project, is a combination of hand thinning treatments and broadcast burning. The unit was hand thinned by a timber sale harvest several years ago to remove Douglas fir bark beetle infested trees. Thinning has improved the Douglas fir stand health and reduced the threat of torching and crown fire. Torching is when a tree completely ignites, flaming like a matchstick. Crown fires are when the fire gets up into the tree-tops and quickly spreads from tree to tree. The slash that was created from the timber sale is the targeted fuel for this burn. A low intensity fire will reduce ground fuel loading while limiting mortality to over-story trees and thus create a resilient landscape and help protect the surrounding communities.

The project was designed to provide greater defensible space and lower the risk from wildfire to homes and private property by removing hazardous fuel loads in the Sylvan Bay Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). This effort will help moderate fire behavior during a wildfire and increase firefighter and public safety.

Actual ignitions for the prescribed burn will depend on meeting strict parameters for weather, fuel moisture, and fire behavior conditions. Smoke will be visible from Pinedale and surrounding area during ignition operations and for a short time after lighting has been completed.

For more information on prescribed fire, fuels reduction projects, and defensible space, visit www.tetonfires.com or call the Pinedale Ranger District at 307-367-4326.

Public comment accepted until June 1
Bureau of Land Management
The Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) proposes to upgrade snow removal equipment in Sublette County to meet higher emission standards and is seeking public comment regarding this proposal.

Funding from the PAPO Mitigation Fund will represent up to $135,000 (75%) of the total project cost with Diesel Emissions Reduction Act funds providing at least $45,000 (25%).

Comments on this proposal will be accepted until June 1, 2017. Please submit comments to the PAPO team at kroadife@blm.gov or P.O. Box 768, Pinedale WY 82941. Please note PAPO Ozone Reduction Proposal in the subject line of emails.

The PAPO board consists of senior managers from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality Air Quality Division, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the Wyoming Department of Agriculture and the BLM. The PAPO team is comprised of an interdisciplinary interagency group of specialists that work for those agencies.

For more information, please contact Kellie Roadifer at 307-367-5309 or kroadife@blm.gov.
