Two miles of wire fencing and fiberglass fence posts have been removed from three wildlife enclosures in the Adson Creek area near Wise River, Montana.

According to a news release from the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, nine members of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) removed about two miles of fencing and posts in the area east of the Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway a month ago.

The enclosures provided protection for aspen tree clones in the 1990s. Crews had removed conifers to improve the aspen stands and the fences were to keep wildlife from browsing on the young trees. The aspen groves improved to the point where the fences were no longer needed.

The Butte Chapter of the RMEF volunteered to complete the work and enhance the elk habitat in southwestern Montana.
