Resource Management

Fire and Aviation

The Forest Service has managed wildland fire for more than 100 years. But how we do it - why, when, and where we do it - has changed. For decades, we fought fire. Science has changed the way we think about wildland fire and the way we manage it. We still fight it, especially to protect communities and the resources people need—but we also use it to make forests and grasslands healthier and to protect communities and natural resources, especially clean, abundant water.
