Weyerhaeuser

Weyerhaeuser Timber Company was incorporated on this day 120 years ago when Frederick Weyerhaeuser and 15 partners purchased 900,000 acres of Washington state timberland. Frederick wanted to call the company the Universal Timber Company, but his partners overruled him, honoring their friend with a company name they felt carried a reputation for integrity and quality. We’re proud to carry on that legacy today and for generations to come! Here’s Frederick in 1875, 25 years before he formed the company. #OnThisDay #forestproud #weyerhaeuser

U.S. Forest Service - Kisatchie National Forest

U.S. Forest Service - Kisatchie National Forest

It is that time of the year when the Kisatchie National Forest Ranger Districts are conducting their prescribed burning operations. The Kisatchie burns approximately 100,000 acres a year, or 1/6 of the forest. Prescribed burns are used to help us reduce the hazardous fuel build up in order to prevent an unintended wildfire. In addition, prescribed fire restores, maintains, and enhances wildlife habitat, as well as greatly improving the ecosystem of longleaf pine. Please use caution when driving in these areas as smoke may be on the road.
