‘We All Need To Come Together’ To Improve Forest Health, NCW Collaborative Says

With so-called megafires on the rise, public and private landowners, as well as governments at the local, state and federal level are recognizing proactive work needs to take place on forest lands.

Whether that’s forest thinning, creating defensible spaces or improving watersheds, it will take all the stakeholders coming to the table. Doing that is the North Central Washington Forest Health Collaborative.

KOHO’s Dan Langager sat down with the Collaborative to learn about their work in the region.

    This is an important project and will result in healthy and fire-receptive forested watersheds. The absence of active forest management will spoil air and water quality, damage critical habitat for fish and wildlife, jeopardize recreational opportunities on public and private land, and cost enormance amounts of money. Low tolerance for these risks should be motivation for the NCW Forest Health Collaborative to execute and achieve successful solutions.
