When When Alaska became a state in 1959, it was granted over 100 million acres of land. The citizens of Alaska became the owners of an area the size of the state of California. At statehood, the Alaska Legislature charged the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) with the complex job of managing the state-owned lands for the "maximum public benefit." The range of possibilities for how state land could be used is vast. Within DNR, the Resource Assessment & Development Section of the Division of Mining, Land and Water has primary responsibility for ...
before it was purchased by the United States in 1784. Settlers soon moved into the region and, in the 19th and early 20th century, the logging industry cut the virgin forests ; clearcutting and forest fires transformed the once verdant land into the "Pennsylvania Desert". Pennsylvania bought this land for its state forests and in the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps worked to improve them. In 1955 the Curtiss-Wright Corporation bought of state forest for a research and manufacturing facility to focus on developing nuclear-powered jet engines . They named their facility Quehanna for the nearby West Branch ...

GARBERVILLE, Calif. May 19, 2010 - The Environmental Protection Information Center and the Center for Biological Diversity today vowed an all-out legal challenge against an ill-advised highway-widening project that not only threatens the ancient redwoods of Richardson Grove State Park, but could also change the rural character of Humboldt County. The California Department of Transportation filed official notice today that the project was approved, but the agency has not yet made its final environmental impact report for the controversial project available to the public. The highway project is widely opposed by local residents, ... market research, surveys and trends


State Forest Resource Management Plan
With much anticipation and excitement, I am pleased to release for your review and input the revised State Forest Resource Management Plan for Pennsylvania's state forests. The state forest system was first established in 1898 for the purpose of providing a continuous supply of wood products, protecting watersheds, and providing opportunities for outdoor recreation. Over the last century, these lands, and additional lands that have been acquired, have been carefully managed by the Bureau of Forestry. Today, the state forest comprises over 2.1 million ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Timber update: Western Oregon Task Force, Defazio and BLM
On July 22, the Administration released the Final Report of the Western Oregon Task Force. The Task Force visited Oregon in January of this year and interviewed various stakeholders interested in BLM land management policies. The report is far from providing a way for the BLM to move forward with timber management in the absence of the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR), which was withdrawn by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on July 16, 2009. The 33 page report instead calls for the formation of committees, and processes that largely sidestep any effort to resolve the issues that have been hampering the management of these ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
YNP fire kicks-up, but quenched by rain
Although the Arthur 2 Fire in eastern Yellowstone National Park kicked-up recently, precipitation Sunday hampered the fire’s growth, leaving fire managers guardedly optimistic it will not spread. The fire is one and one-half miles southwest of the East Entrance and on the south side of the Middle Fork of the Shoshone River. The fire has caused no closures. Reported at 75 acres Thursday, the fire expanded to 218 acres over the weekend. But on Sunday night and Monday morning, nearly one-third of an inch of precipitation was reported. “We had a lot of rain last night,” said Bob MacGregor, Arthur 2 fire ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Trees: Cyprus trees, forest pest management, cyprus trees
I have noticed that on one of my cyprus trees right next to lake Austin in Texas, that the bark has started peeling off in curly-type-things. It looks like a squirrel got to it, except for the fact that it's curly. It is in a shady spot in spring-fall, but now all of the leaves have fallen off. Are the curlies caused by an animal, bug, sun, or a disease and should I be worried about it? Also, if it is something bad for the tree, what is the cure? THANK YOU! Answer Depending on the age of the tree this could be just normal bark patterns. As cypress ages the bark will peel and look as if there may be a problem. Not knowing ...
Google Answers: Public domain information about hiking trails in USA
I created a free database of hiking trails - I would like to prepopulate the site with information about as many trails as possible. I hope that you can help me find some public domain information about hiking trails in the USA. It would be best if I could get a list of publications/resources and methodically go through all the trails, one-by-one, adding the trails to Hikipedia as I go. I am willing to order some publications (published by rangers/national parks/government?) if I can freely copy the information from there. Of course I am also willing to use online resources. I am primarily looking for a ...
