About The Harney County Wildfire Collaborative


  • When considering the use of fuel breaks, land managers are often faced with a potentially paradoxical situation: the need to substantially alter sagebrush habitats with fuel breaks to ultimately reduce a greater threat of their destruction from wildfire. This report provides an initial assessment of both the potential effectiveness of fuel breaks and their ecological costs and benefits.

  • The DRAFT Pueblo Mountain Pilot Project Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes several types of tools to be applied at different locations within the 26,400-acre pilot project area to attain desired vegetative conditions. The purpose of this pilot project is to test decreasing the potential for and impacts of large-scale wildfires in Harney County, specifically an area within Pueblo Mountain.
