To help dry forests, fire needs to be just the right intensity, and happen more than once

New research from Oregon State University: "Too hot, too cold, or just right: Can wildfire restore dry forests of the interior Pacific Northwest?"

Two Oregon landscapes selected for FY23 Joint Chief’s Landscape Restoration Partnership funding

Two projects in Oregon will receive funding as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Join Chiefs' Landscape Restoration Partnership initiative, including the North Wasco All Lands project and the Southern Blues Restoration project. The projects aim to mitigate wildfire risk, improve water quality, restore forest ecosystems, combat climate change, and create job opportunities for local contractors while supporting the economies of surrounding areas. Both projects align with broader efforts to reduce wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protect water quality and supply, and improve wildlife habitat for at-risk species.
