Timber Management

Prescribed burning is utilized to enhance timber stands, wildlife habitat, and reduce opportunity for wildfires.  The burning will reduce fuel loading by removing logging slash, tops and limbs scattered throughout the stands following the thinning activity.  It will also promote vigorous growth of new understory vegetation such as grasses and forbs important to wildlife for food and protective cover.
