Forest management is complex and requires careful consideration of tree species, local climate, and other environmental factors. If you are a government agency looking for help with forest management or implementation of a Forest Management Plan (FMP), our team of professionals is here to help.
What Is Forest Management?
Sustainable forest management includes:
- Vegetation management / controlling invasive plant species
- Restoring / protecting ecosystems
- Decreasing hazards (e.g., preventing forest fires, controlling diseases and invasive pests, removing trees that threaten the safety of trail-users, vehicles, and other visitors)
- And more
Why Is Forest Management Important?
Actively managing and controlling forests can help ecosystems adapt to climate change, protect wildlife habitats, preserve clean drinking water, and diversify tree species.
One of the most common problems that threaten our forests is invasive pathogens or pests. Recognizing signs of insects or diseases and quickly responding can help save forest trees before it’s too late. Invasive plant species also threaten native species in our forests and should be eliminated methodically to preserve the ecosystem and encourage native species to flourish.
Another common problem is hazardous trees, which threaten the safety of visitors and can cause damage to your agency’s structures. RTEC is experienced at hazard tree removal and can help eliminate these threats in a safe and efficient manner.
In recent years, we’ve seen devastating wildfires in the news, spreading quickly and indiscriminately damaging property and ecosystems. These tragedies can be prevented and mitigated through hazardous fuels reduction.
