The overarching goal of the fire management program is to restore and maintain fire-dependent ecosystems such as forests, woodlands, prairies, savannas, and glades.

The Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri’s only National Forest, covers a large portion of the Ozarks. The forest is managed in a way to conserve its resources and allows both recreational and commercial users to coexist while making sure the forests will be useable in the future.

Forest management in Missouri started in after decades of mismanagement led to disastrous environmental and social. Site-specific fire histories developed in parts of the Missouri Ozarks reveal that human population and culture are closely linked to the frequency and intensity of fire over the last years.

Where population density was greater than one person per square mile, fires occurred every one to five years. The Ozark Highlands fire regime.—The Ozark Highlands ecoregion (Bailey, ) comprises approximatelykm2 of Arkansas and Missouri and to a lesser extent Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma.
