    Description

    Treatments applied at Lick Creek were the first landscape-scale applications of ecosystem management on the Bitterroot National Forest. The coordinated effort between educators, researchers, resource managers, and the public helped gain acceptance and understanding of new approaches to management, both internally and externally. The longer skidding distances, high residual volume per acre, intensive marking guides, and underburning requirements all contributed to make the sale distinct from past sales and more difficult to sell and implement. However, if public land management is truly going to reflect ecosystem processes, structure and scale, these attributes will become the norm.
