Forest Health and Fire Safe Program

Allocation Period: 2012-2013
Allocation Amount: $15600.00

Local businesses, landowners, and organizations in the Big Sky area are taking action and addressing their forest health issues as a whole. Big Sky’s forests are overstocked, which makes them susceptible to catastrophic wildland fires, insect pests, and diseases. Our forests need aggressive and intelligent management aimed at replacing the benefits that wildfire once did to promote forest health.

Priorities:
Enhance public benefit from trees and forest (recreation, wildlife, water, aesthetics)
Protect forests from harm (wildfire, epidemic insect pests and diseases outbreaks)
Conserve working forest lands
Identify and conserve high priority forest ecosystems and landscapes (white bark pine, aspen stands, riparian areas)
Actively and sustainably manage forests
