The Coronado National Forest, Safford Ranger District plans to conduct wood pile burning activities on Mt. Graham, in the Pinaleño Mountains, over the next several months. Burning will be dependent upon weather conditions.
The project is intended to reduce excessive vegetation, or “fuel,” in and adjacent to the summer home areas of Turkey Flat and Old Columbine to create defensible space and restore a more fire-resilient forest within the area.
Wood piles will also be burned in the vicinity of Grant Hill.
