Description

The importance of fire in many western ecosystems cannot be overstated. On the Kaibab National Forest, fire provides habitat for wildlife, maintains watersheds, and supports forest health and productivity. Fire also influences a wide range of values, resources, and ecosystem services. On the Kaibab, resource specialists have a strong understanding and appreciation for the benefits of fire, and they work closely with the fire staff to ensure that fire management and resource management are one in the same.
