Forest Roads
A typical state forest road
Roads provide essential access for the active management of the resources found on state-owned forest lands. Forest management, timber removal, recreation, and fire protection, as well as other activities, are all heavily, if not totally, dependent on road access into the forest.
Besides being an asset, roads are recognized as sources of erosion and sedimentation, impact wildlife and aquatic habitats, remove valuable timberland from production, and require significant work and expense to build and maintain. For these reasons, an environmentally-sound, economically-efficient, and effective road management program must be utilized on state-owned forest lands.
