By reducing tree density, certain areas within the project boundary are ex- pected to return to a "pifion juni- per/savannah" type ecosystem. "This is one of several pre- scribed fire projects that will be implemented on the Gila Na- tional Forest this Spring," said Craig Cowie, Fire Staff Officer for the forest. "All fire managers co- ordinate with each other to en- sure that equipment and staffing needs are in place for each project. Firefighter and public safety are at the top of the prior- ity list during all fire management activities," Cowie added. Light- ing operations should be com- pleted within three to four days. If weather conditions change and become unfavorable, ignitions will cease or be postponed. Smoke will be generated and closely monitored during igni- tions. Most of the smoke is ex- pected to dissipate as daytime temperatures increase and light winds develop; lingering smoke will be most notable at nighttime and during early morning hours.
