Potential for intensive timber management on the Flathead Indian reservation, Montana, 1967
Flathead Tribal Council
Genre (Short List)
This report presents a proposal for production and commercial use of forest products under a multiple-use program for the Indian forest resources, i.e., timber, watershed, grazing, wildlife and recreation. It is a plan for sustained-yield production of timber on the Flathead Indian Reservation, in a manner best suited to the Indian owners. Large scale timber sales were initiated on the Flathead a half century ago. The initial management was concerned primarily with forest protection and the sale of timber. Forest management objectives for the Flathead Indian forest have basically remained the same. However, recreational values and watershed values of the forest cover are rapidly increasing in importance and must receive increasing emphasis in a multiple-use forest management program. This report shows the need for more intensive forest management and states a timely plan of action.
