Description: The 88-year photo sequences, descriptions of historical changes, and the initial results from ecosystembased management treatments at Lick Creek portray a dynamic, ever-changing forest. The goals of ecosystem- based management at Lick Creek are to continuously maintain an open forest containing old growth as well as younger age classes of ponderosa pine. Half a century ago, Weaver (1943) and Biswell (1963) recognized that ponderosa pine forests were dependent on frequent low-intensity fires and that forest managers need to substitute prescribed fire for historical fires, often in combination with other fuel treatments and silvicultural thinning.

Keywords: ecosystem-based management, forest succession, prescribed fire
