This newsletter’s pages show how ecologically-attuned management maintains wide open spaces for aesthetics, production and the essential dynamics of fire and wildlife movement to sustain those values.
What is sustainability? It is a subject I have studied a lot. In terms of carbon, the life element, sustainability means balancing for the ability of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. Thus, sustainability reflects the fourth dimension of time, where empirically-monitored sites maintain carbon-balanced living health, even in the face of the regional desertification trend we see playing out across the Southwest.
