- Tools and Training
SERDP and ESTCP efforts are developing the science, models, tools, and methods to put into practice the principles of ecological forestry on DoD lands. This approach to forestry perpetuates ecosystem integrity at landscape scales while continuing to provide realistic military training and other ecosystem services. Included here is identifying the appropriate use of fire for fire-adapted ecosystems and the necessary models and decision support tools needed to support its use.
