San Juan Forest proposes prescribed burn plan

Goal is to reduce fuels, improve forest ecology
Low-intensity prescribed burns like this one reduce forest litter and open up soil beds for new pine seedlings.
As smoke rises from a test burn, firefighters line up to begin a control burn in the Doe Canyon area a few years ago. The San Juan National Forest is preparing a plan for prescribed burns to reduce the threat of large wildfires and to improve forest ecology.
