BLM Plans Burn of Hoback Slash Piles


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) plans to burn approximately 10 slash piles near the Hoback Ranches Subdivision beginning Monday, Dec. 5, if favorable weather and fuel conditions permit.

The slash piles were created by the BLM during construction of a fuel break to protect the Hoback Ranches Subdivision from wildfire and consist mainly of Subalpine Fir and Lodgepole Pine.

The Hoback Ranches Subdivision is located approximately 28 miles north of Pinedale, Wyo. and 49 miles south of Jackson, Wyo. off of State Highway 191.

For more information, please contact Greg Reser, PFO natural resource specialist for fire and fuels, at 307-367-5350.



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.
