Forest to Burn South of Wilson

Forest to Burn

The Jackson and Blackrock Ranger Districts will be moving ahead with prescribed burn operations on the Taylor Mountain and Dry Quad units. The exact timing of these plans will depend heavily upon the previous, current and expected weather and air quality conditions. Fire Managers could start implementation of the Taylor Mountain burn as early as tomorrow. The Taylor Mountain Prescribed Burn is located in the vicinity of Hidden Hills and Highland Hills subdivisions south of Wilson. This burn could total up to 20 acres. The Dry Quad Prescribed Burn is an approximately 100-acre unit, and is adjacent to the “Toppings Lake Road.”  This is the final phase of an aspen enhancement project in the area. Additional goals for this prescribed burn are to protect white bark pine and old growth Douglas fir species while reducing the spread of noxious weeds in the burn area. Smoke may be visible from highway 89 and around the community of Moran.
