Resource Management

Resource Managment Overview

Fire Management

After many years of fire exclusion, an ecosystem that needs periodic fire becomes unhealthy. Trees are stressed by overcrowding; fire-dependent species disappear; and flammable fuels build up and become hazardous. However, the right fire at the right place at the right time helps maintain healthy forests, communities and watersheds. Learn more. >>>

Vegetation & Timber Management

Thinning, through commercial and non-commercial sales, can help to maintain healthy forests and watersheds in an ecologically sustainable manner. Guided by law, regulation, and agency policy, forest managers use timber sales, as well as other vegetation management techniques such as prescibed fire, to achieve objectives such as ecological restoration and research.
