Thinning the Blaze: Enhancing Forest Resilience


In our latest video, we delve into the critical practice of mechanical thinning and its role in protecting our forests from devastating wildfires. Over decades, our forests have become unnaturally dense, making them highly susceptible to severe wildfires. Through expert insights and scientific research, we explore how mechanical thinning, combined with prescribed burns, can create healthier, more resilient forests.

Highlights from the Video:
- Understand the dangers of overgrown forests and ladder fuels.
- Learn how mechanical thinning disrupts fire pathways.
- Discover the benefits of combining thinning with prescribed burns.
- Hear from experts like Eric Knapp, Pacific Southwest Research Station Ecologist.

This video was produced in partnership with the Federal Forest Resource Coalition (FFRC), underscoring our shared commitment to sustainable forest management and wildfire prevention.

Together, let's make our forests stronger and more resilient.


We the Forest transforms forest management through storytelling. Our approach helps forestry professionals who want to build support for responsible forest management by sharing enlightening perspectives and helping forest stakeholders find common ground. 

We are dedicated to building common ground on the many sides of the timber production conversation, showing sustainable forest-first practices can provide solutions for catastrophic wildfire prevention, bug and disease reduction, climate change mitigation, and resource stewardship.

Ensuring our forests are around for years to come is something that should be our utmost priority. Through education like this, we can come together to understand the importance of restoration and collaboration to protect our forests from catastrophic wildfire, and create a more sustainable reality.
