Description

From the text ... 'These 'problem fires' are the symptoms of a larger forest health issue in which ecological realities conflict with both social expectations and economic limitations.... Only through dedication and alignment of the full force and capabilities of integrated, interagency efforts can meaningful progress be made toward the restoration and maintenance of more resilient ecosystems.'
