Forest Under Stress (FUS) is presented by Rachel Lee Hall, Conservationist and Citizen Advocate. She promotes active forest management on our public lands to replace the current passive forest management, which allowed the vegetative fuel load to increase over the years promoting the decline of forest health and unprecedented wildfires.
Additional information from Rachel:
When the forest floor is better understood by citizens, this will help all of us address the need to reduce competitive vegetative biomass that is contributing to the brownout of our forest for limited moisture.
Thank you and your members!
I am available to present Zoom meetings or in-person should you know of others who would benefit.
Thank you for being my first Zoom meeting on FUS!
I photographed the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest from a 70-mile radius and Lakes/Reservoirs, because of my grave concerns of last Dec. precipitation deficit.
Please send it to your members with my blessings to view and pass onto all those they know who live in the WUI or for that matter anywhere to see the dire situation before us.
The smoke will follow the contours to the valley.
I am alarmed that this knowledge is not common.
I fear the worst when the fires come if folks are not actively fire proofing their homes and have a plan for their cattle/horses/etc. to leave.
I am a first responder for wildfires with Samaritans Purse since Paradise Fire. This does not have to happen to us if we do something.
