Frequently anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: Forest Management Projects Completed and Planned, Map 31
Abstract:
The map of completed and planned forest management projects was produced for the Northern Front Range Mountain Pine Beetle Working Group and updated by the Foresters Work Group (see Map 31). Members of the work group had a strong working knowledge of the map because they were personally involved in the funding, design, and implementation of most of these projects. Not only were they familiar with current projects, they knew the history of past forestry projects in Boulder County as well.
