Rethinking Forests Video Explains Why Management Is Important

This is a good introductory video (7 minutes) to help people understand the importance of managing forests to help the environment, rather than at the expense of the environment.

A century of deplorable timber harvest practices led to public outcry and ultimately ended logging in National Forests. That leaves public agencies with a growing job: fighting forest fires.

Responsible forest stewardship is a way to reduce the threat of fires, make our forests healthy, and give us public lands we can enjoy for generations.
