Forest Management

Forest management includes what happens before, during, and after a fire. 

By applying accepted scientific management measures including prescribed burning, thinning overstocked stands of timber, increased logging, and post fire removal of dead and dying trees we can create healthier, more fire resilient conditions on our Federal Forest Lands.

CHF breaks forest management into the following topics:

  • Fuels Mitigation
  • Hazard Reduction
  • Road Access to Public Lands
  • Maintaining Fire Breaks
  • Thinning
  • Salvage
    • Post Fire Salvage
  • Reforestation
