BLM Completes Hazard Tree Removal Project in Big Hole Area


Officials with the Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office say work is complete on a project to remove hazard trees in several of its Big Hole area recreation sites.

The Big Hole Recreation Site Hazard Tree Removal Project is now finished in the Dickie Bridge and East Bank campgrounds and the Bryant Creek dispersed camping area.

Logging is currently occurring on private lands adjacent to BLM property in the Bryant Creek area, so users should remain cautious while recreating and drive carefully in the area.

For more information, contact Michael O’Brien at the Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7643.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
