Logging and prescribed fires proposed in Helena National Forest

Posted: May 19, 2013

Comment Deadline: June 17

The USFS has released a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for a proposed logging and prescribed burns in Helena National Forest geared towards fire management. Helena National Forest is in west-central Montana. The plan is partly in response to the devastation that occurred in 2003 as a result of the Lincoln Complex fires, which burned approximately 36,000 acres of land in the area.

The USFS is working with local communities to come up with the best management plan moving forward. Representatives from USFS hope that the project will “lessen the threat to homes in the event of a wildfire and create conditions that allow the reestablishment of fire as a natural process on the landscape,” as well as make vegetation in the area more resilient.

The area is home to a number of animals in the area protected under the Endangered Species Act, as well as wolverines, which are expected to be added to the list of endangered species under the Act.
