2004 report on the health of Colorado's forests: Special issue: Ponderosa pine forests


Lewis, Paige; Kaufmann, Merrill R.; Huckaby, Laurie S.; Leatherman, Dave. 2005. 2004 report on the health of Colorado's forests: Special issue: Ponderosa pine forests. Colorado Forestry Advisory Board. Denver, CO: Colorado Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry. 32 p.

The 2004 Report on the Health of Colorado's Forests begins with an overview of significant incidents and trends in forest insect and disease activity across the state. The remainder of the Report provides an in-depth examination of the ecology, condition and management of Colorado's ponderosa pine forests. Unlike previous editions, which highlighted a range of forest health concerns, this and future Reports will focus on the research related to a particular forest type. These detailed, science-based investigations should effectively deepen Coloradans' understanding of the forested landscapes that surround them and the challenges that lie ahead in ensuring long-term forest sustainability.
