Kaibab National Forest Flying J Pile Burning Project 2018

Close-up of flames from a burning slash pile.

 

Slash piles are the result of forest restoration efforts, and the goal of burning them is to further reduce fuels that could feed high-intensity wildfire. Winter is typically an ideal time to burn piles because the snow surrounding them prevents fire from creeping outside of desired treatment boundaries.
