What’s a Renewable Resource?
Trees are what we call a Renewable Resource. That means we can use something over and over again. In forestry it means as we harvest trees to make products, we plant seedlings in their place so that there will be more trees when we need them.

What’s Forest Management?
Taking care of our forests is called Forest Management. Foresters grow trees tall in one part of the forest, while trees are harvested and replanted in another part of the forest. Sometimes foresters use fire to keep the forests healthy. Controlled fires help clear out the underbrush that could cause big, uncontrolled forest fires. Controlled fires also open up space for animals to live, and make the soil healthy.

Foresters manage our forests wisely so that we will always have plenty of trees and tree products.
