Pacific Creek Road
This project treated a stand of mixed conifer along the road leading through Grand Teton NP to the Pacific Creek (Braman) sub-division. The timber stand had a large percentage of standing dead trees and accumulated dead heavy logs on the forest floor. The project targeted the dead fuel accumulation as well as completing treatment of the remaining forest overstory to defensible space standards.
Fire crews constructed piles in recent years and burned some of those piles in the previous two winters. Remaining piles will be targeted for the 2020-21 winter season.
Initiated pile burning during the week of Nov 9th-13, 2020
