FOREST HEALTH IN ARIZONA:
THE IMPACT OF FOREST FIRES ON OUR LAND, WATER & ECONOMY

 

Although Arizona isn’t known as a heavily-forested state, we are the stewards of more than 12 million acres of national forest. The wildfire season upon us threatens not only Arizona’s precious landscape but our water quality and ultimately our pocketbooks. Anyone who believes forest health is a Northern region problem ought to think again. The cost of inaction is significant for all of us – our forest lands will end up crispy and our residents thirsty, as Arizona’s watersheds are severely impacted by the devastation of fire residue. This statewide problem requires diverse stakeholders to become vested in solutions. And we’re running out of time.
