Stands of ponderosa pine in the Black Hills National Forest have been subject to management by professional foresters longer than any other western timber type. This management began with the first regulated sale of timber from a forest reserve, referred to as Case No. 1. While more than 5 bbf of timber were removed from this forest during the last 100 years, timber volume has grown from 1.5 bbf in 1899 to more than 5 bbf today. Case No. 1 is an excellent example of how effective forest management can sustain multiple forest resources.
