Fuels reduction treatments utilizing equipment as well as prescribed burning. The treatments will reduce the risk of high severity wildfire and increase public and firefighter safety.

Jackson Ranger District: Teton to Snake Fuels Management Project

The purpose of the Teton To Snake Fuels Management Project (Teton To Snake) is to reduce wildland fire threat to private lands, improve firefighter and public safety, and allow Forest managers to transition from suppressing most fires in the Palisades Wilderness area to a more natural fire regime.

The Teton to Snake project is being considered at this time to move the project area closer to the desired conditions as directed by the Bridger-Teton National Forest’s Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan). The combination of prevailing winds and forest fuels in the project area indicate the potential for future fires with behavior like the Green Knoll Fire and the threat to private land in and near the project area. Reducing the fire potential would reduce the threat to private property while also allowing the proper management of the Palisades Wilderness Study Area, which calls for fire to play its natural role in maintaining the fire-adapted ecosystem.
