BHNF Seeking Public Comments on Davis Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project

June 10 @ 11:50 pm - 11:59 pm

Sundance, WY, May 10, 2024 – The Black Hills National Forest is proposing to reduce fire hazard in the Moskee area of the Black Hills in Crook County, WY. High fuel loading in this area poses a risk to surrounding lands and communities.

The Forest Service is proposing to treat up to 1,304 acres of ponderosa pine, grasslands and hardwoods. Pine forest varies from dense, mature stands to open-canopy woodlands with an understory of grass or dense regeneration. Detailed maps can be found at https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=66020.

Or for management projects generally:

The project would be implemented partly via Good Neighbor Authority agreements with the State of Wyoming, as authorized by Title VIII of the 2018 USDA Farm Bill (Public Law 115–334).
