HOFFMAN: Proactive Forest Management Is Sustainable For The Environment

Gabriella Hoffman writes in The Daily Caller that proactive forest management is sustainable for the environment.

The C3 Take
  • Climate change and years of fire suppression policies have made wildfires more lethal and intense, especially out west.
  • In the south, active forest management has resulted in significantly less forest fires than what is being seen in western states such as California.
  • Enacting active forest management practices, such as forest thinning and prescribed burns, across the nation would result in less lethal and destructive wildfires.

“Active forest management policies enable forests to become more resilient and allow for low-intensity, regular fire cycles. Lawmakers would be well-served to incorporate this, among other policy prescriptions, in their rulemaking decisions.”
