To foster more resilient forests and healthier fire cycles, forest restoration must be prioritized.
Establishing a new corps program will not resolve fundamental obstacles that hinder broad conservation and restoration work.
States, tribes and the private sector are stepping up to restore America’s forests and reduce wildfire risks. Policy reforms could empower them to go even further.
PERC research fellow Holly Fretwell appears on C-SPAN's Washington Journal to discuss how we can foster resilient forests and mitigate wildfire risk.
