In Utah’s Forests, Management Makes the Difference »

2023 Spring Conference, May 10, 2023 2:45 pm

Active forest management is needed in Utah to reduce the likelihood of undesirable fires, improve forest health, improve wildlife habitat, protect infrastructure improvements and increase public safety. Years of fire suppression and fire exclusion have contributed to the current unhealthy forest conditions as have years of limited funding for vegetation treatments and frequent litigation by environmental groups. Session attendees will learn what forest managers are doing to restore forest health in Utah.
