Description

The top priority of the Forest Health program is to increase the pace and scale of forest restoration to match the pace and scale of climate change. Partners are building new relationships with utility companies and private industry to accelerate work on the ground. Expanding the forest restoration program will also bring greater benefits to Lake Tahoe’s ecosystem, creating more wildlife habitat, more carbon sequestration, and more clean water to Lake Tahoe’s tributaries.
