Abstract: Ponderosa pine forests are a major forest type found in every state in the western U.S.They are readily accessible and aesthetically appealing, and they have provided valuable economic benefits from logging and grazing. Human activities have contributed to extensive alteration of these forests. While early Native American effects may have been locally significant (Allen 2002; Allen et al. 2002; Baker and Kipfmueller 2001; Barrett and Arno 1982; Kaye and Swetnam 1999), most impacts in much of the western U.S.have probably occurred during the last 130-150 years, since settlement by Euro-Americans.
