NASF publishes statement in support of Build Back Better

The Build Back Better Act would make unprecedented and desperately needed investments in the health and resilience of America’s forests.

“The scale and severity of wildfires—and their impact on communities—far outpace current efforts to prevent human-caused wildfires and mitigate wildfire damages,” said NASF President and and Connecticut State Forester Christopher Martin. “Without an unprecedented and sustained investment in coordinated wildland fire and forest management, wildfires will continue to plague the nation’s forests, destroy our cherished communities, and irrevocably alter American landscapes.”

The NASF is proud to stand in support of the bill and looks forward to contributing to its implementation.
