Understanding the next #wildfire is not a question of ‘if’, but ‘when’. We must make smart #forest management decisions + keep #Forests4Climate #ClimateAction #forestproud

Agree 💯 with @emilydolhansky on this. Strategic & carbon-smart wood utilization is a vital component of the diverse forestry--far beyond just "logging"--that we need to create climate-resilient forests.
Wood utilization takes infrastructure.
Sawmills are critical for processing small material generated through restoration work. We also need small mills, mobile mills, biomass mills, curtain burners, chippers, masticators, and every other resource available to perform essential work. https://twitter.com/AdamAton/status/1425494735607803915
"The science is clear – climate-smart management of America’s public lands, as well as privately owned farms, forests and ranches, can help remove millions of tons of carbon from the atmosphere." #forests4climate
In order to avoid the catastrophic impacts of unabated climate change, we must pursue every mitigation strategy at our disposal. America’s natural and working lands can play an important role in helping to achieve our long-term climate goals. https://usnature4climate.org/2021/08/11/in-the-wake-of-ipcc-report-u-s-nature4climate-supports-bold-climate-action-to-address-climate-change/
#Reconciliation is moving forward for our federal budget, and for our broken relationship with our climate.
🙏 @SenateDems for making #Forests4Climate a central 🧩 in this newly approved package. @AmericanForests @SenateAgDems https://www.americanforests.org/media-release/american-forests-statement-on-budget-reconciliation/
Tax credits are a tried & true approach to incentivize private actions that benefit the public interest. We can use this approach to mobilize 🇺🇸's #Forests4Climate. @AmericanForests @AlixMurdoch @ForestClimateWG @1t_org @US_N4C @TheHill @restoreforward
We loved working with @tpl_org on the Thrive Outside movement. Our mission continues through programs like these to connect all Georgians to working forests and the benefits they provide. #gaforestswork #keepingforests #forests4climate
Big thanks to our amazing partners @GaForestryFdn for helping Atlanta-area teens connect with the outdoors for some summer fun. Through the Atlanta Camp Best Friends these teens were able to learn about the scientific properties in the Chattahoochee River.
