Each national forest and grassland is governed by a management plan in accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). These plans set management, protection, and use goals and guidelines. Monitoring conditions on a forest or grassland ensures projects are done in accordance with plan direction, and determines effects that might require a change in management.

The Waldo Canyon Fire of 2012 on the Pike National Forest and surrounding area is regarded as one of the most destructive wildfires in Colorado history. A year later the Forest Service continues to work with multiple partners to mitigate remaining threats to nearby communities due to the fire damage.
