The resolution points out that these areas show similar- ities in resource development including agriculture and forestry. Because of this "Harvesting and management of timber and agricultural resources is an integral part of the history and culture since 1890 in this region, these cultural and his- toric land uses represent a significant opportunity to showcase best management practices that contribute to the colorful history of the routes." According to the agenda, the major uses of the land along this route are labeled timber production zones and are committed to growing and harvesting timber. Taxes col- lected from the harvest go to the county of origin. The routes are currently part of the national forest scenic byways system and do not run along private lands. These areas, if listed as Spe- cial Treatment Areas by Call. fornia departments, would jeopardize them.
