USFS: Forest merger off
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – JH Weekly has learned that plans to further study the merit of merging the Bridger-Teton and Caribou-Targhee national forests have been scrapped and any pursuit of that idea is officially dead.
Sources inside the BTNF confirmed early Tuesday morning that a decision was made to reject plans to merge the two forests contained within Wyoming and Idaho. The combination of the two forests would have resulted in a 6.5 million acre forest – the largest in the Lower 48.
It is believed the decision was made by Harv Forsgren’s temporary deputy replacement deputy regional forester Marlene Finley. Nora Rasure was recently named as Forsgren’s permanent replacement.
No decision was made on the fate of the Bridger-Teton supervisor’s office.
