Ecosystem Management Timber Resources

This is a sub-network of pages hosted by the Colville National Forest. They describe timber and special forest products management within our Forest. These pages of the Colville Forest site are intended to address many of the information needs relating to the advertisement of forest products for sale, the annual reporting of timber sold and harvested, and reporting associated with Special Forest Products program.

Colville Five and Twenty Year Vegetation Management Plans

The Colville National Forest maintains a five year plan of vegetation management and restoration projects that is frequently updated, along with a twenty year plan of upcoming project areas across the Forest.  The five year plan shows project names, expected acres of treatment, timber volumes, and other relevant information.  The twenty year plan is a broad vision for management of the Forest throughout the next twenty years.  This assures all planning areas across the Forest will be managed for fuels, vegetation, roads, watershed health, and other resource concerns every twenty years.

Motor Vehicle Use Overview

National forests are required to designate a system of roads, trails, and areas that are open to motor vehicle use for both off-highway and highway-legal vehicles.  The goal of the Colville National Forest’s travel management process is to create a safe and sustainable road and trail system that provides recreational opportunities and appropriate access while protecting forest resources.
