Incident Overview Updated: 2 years ago

The Richfield Ranger District on the Fishlake National Forest conducted a prescribed fire project in late June on Monroe Mountain. The project is a continuation of similar prescribed fires that have been implemented as part of the Monroe Mountain Aspen Ecosystem Restoration Project.

The purpose of this prescribed fire is to help restore aspen ecosystems on Monroe Mountain by reducing conifer competition and stimulate new aspen sprouting across the landscape. Additionally, through the use of prescribed burning, hazardous fuel accumulations will be reduced, which in turn reduces the risk to life, property and natural resources, while promoting aspen regeneration.

The total completed acres on the project is 2,529. Project managers do not anticipate additional growth.
