Meet the Bullwinkles: With moose thriving in Steamboat, here's some history and safety tips 5.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Steamboat Springs’ first moose encounter was a startling, violent affair. J.C. Woods and George Kemry were hunting for elk along Burgess Creek in November, 1941, when Woods shot at what he thought was just another large bull elk. The animal fled deeper into the woods, and Kemry was tasked with going into the timber on Storm Mountain to finish the kill. “Much to Kemry’s surprise, he was charged by an infuriated bull moose ...,” the Oak Creek Times reported. Kemry reportedly side-stepped the charging animal and fired another shot to kill it. It was then the two men accidentally made some history. “As far as can be learned, this was the first moose ever to be killed in Colorado,” the Times proclaimed. The head of the moose from that first encounter can still be viewed today on a plaque that hangs inside the entrance of the historic Routt County Courthouse in Steamboat Springs. Wildlife officials speculated at the time that the young moose had wandered into Routt County from Wyoming. The Oak Creek Times ...

Tongass forest plan eyes young-growth timber 10.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Juneau, Alaska • Plans for managing the nation’s largest national forest call for changes in timber harvests that one critic says will be “the demise of the timber industry as we know it right now.” The Tongass National Forest released a management plan update Friday that it says will emphasize young-growth timber sales in the forest, which covers much of southeast Alaska, and allow for a logging rate that it says will meet projected timber demand. This stems from a 2013 memo from U.S. Agricultu...

Community Agriculture Alliance: More than just a Christmas tree 9.12.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The tradition in many local families, as in many families throughout the globe, is to tromp into the woods and cut down a Christmas tree each holiday season. Whether it is your tradition or not, cutting down a Christmas tree is an act whose benefits can extend far beyond providing a house with a holiday twinkle. When you cut down a tree, you are essentially harvesting it; it is removed from the forest and put to use in a different manner, becoming one of the many products we get from our forests. The gap it leaves behind is not only a gaping hole — it is a chance for the trees close by to grow larger and healthier with the extra space, water and other resources that become available. It is a chance for the grasses and whortleberry, and maybe even a few aspen sprouts, to take up residence in the new-found sunshine. It is a chance to renew the forest. As you see, the act of harvesting a tree provides much more than just a Christmas tree. As the season for cutting Christmas trees is upon us, we challenge ...
