Promoting a shared stewardship model
Many forests provide multiuse ecosystems that support recreation as well as diverse wildlife habitats that can present licensed hunting, fishing, and food gathering opportunities. Forests also help mitigate the pressures on wilderness areas when foresters use a holistic approach to manage forest health and a sustainable timber harvest, which requires understanding and compromise under a shared stewardship model. These models illuminate the value that forests provide to regional watershed services in providing clean water, erosion control, surface flow regulation, and stream bank stabilization for present and future generations.
