Should “nature management”¹ be on-topic on TGO?
By “nature management”, I mean questions related to management of publicly accessible recreational land. For example:
- Why does National Trust Wales choose to actively prevent reforestation (by having sheep grazing)? In a TV documentary, a National Trust woman said it was necessary to have sheep, “otherwise it would probably just become woodland”
- What kind of vegetation does BLM Utah encourage on its higher-lying public lands and how is this related to hunting?
- What are the pros and cons of suppressing wildfires in a sparsely inhabited Mediterranean climate?
Such a question is relevant for me as an outdoors person, but it's somewhat tangential as it's rather about management/policy than about how to enjoy the outdoors.
Nature management is a discipline at universities:
¹I put “nature management” between quotation marks because in my personal opinion, nature should by definition not require any management. However, that is clearly not the way the phrase is used.
