Pile Burns Planned across the Carson National Forest

Fire managers on the Carson National Forest plan to conduct pile burns on the Camino Real and Tres Piedras Ranger Districts sometime between November 2018 and February 2019 as conditions allow.

These piles are composed of dry vegetation called slash, such as tree tops, limbs, branches, brush, and other cut miscellaneous materials. The slash is created from previous thinning and associated fuelwood removal activities. The purpose is to reduce the threat of high severity, high intensity wildfire to the public, adjacent private property and natural resources in the Wildland Urban Interface area that surrounds the communities.

Fire managers burn the piles during safe burning conditions, generally after a snowfall or significant rain event. These prescribed burns are managed with firefighter and public safety as the first priority.

The planned treatment areas are:
East La Jara Piles - The unit is 25 acres located off State Highway 64 and State Highway 434, west of Taos Pines, and 2 miles northwest of Angel Fire.
Ojo Sarco Piles - The unit is approximately 150 acres and is located off State Highway 76, south of Ojo Sarco.
Tio Gordito Piles - The unit is approximately 25 acres and is located 6 miles south of Tres Piedras.

Pile burn operations require moisture in the surrounding vegetation and as such typically produce lighter smoke than a prescribed broadcast burn. Information on air quality and protecting your health using the 5-3-1 visibility method can be found online at the New Mexico Department of Health’s website at https://nmtracking.org/fire.
