2008 Maki Creek Project, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Big Piney Ranger District
The Maki Creek Project was a treatment to rejuvenate conifer-encroached aspen stands and adjacent sagebrush near the Jewett elk feedground on the BTNF Big Piney Ranger District. Conifers were slashed prior to burning in order to achieve desired burn severity and conifer mortality. See attached for a summary of the robust aspen response from this successful project.
More success stories will be forthcoming . . .
