Desoto State Park - Fort Payne, Alabama.

Alabama has 24 state parks and like most states, these areas provide unique recreational, scenic or historic values for it's citizens. Many parks also experience the same forest concerns as other forestlands; like disease, overcrowding, and forest fires. This has been a dilemma for some states in how to manage their state parks. There is a large and growing number of citizens who recognize that preserving their parks means that they must also care for them, and that may involve thinning or fuels removal periodically as opposed to letting them go to wilderness.
