The Watershed - Forest Connection

Watershed-Forest Connection
Forests are often at the top of a watershed. Good forest management protects water at its source, while careless planning or improper use of forested lands can create problems that take many decades to fix. Good management requires careful planning for all the resources that are found in the forest, not just the trees. It includes protecting soil and water sources, thinning overgrown areas, maintaining diverse species and ages of native plants, controlling noxious weeds, monitoring insect and disease outbreaks, and designing roads and trails to avoid erosion. These forest management strategies produce clean and abundant water for our watersheds, as well as healthy forests.
