Invest in the forest, for prevention

The old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” has never been more true than when it comes to the megafires plaguing the West. We can invest money up front, restoring forests to prevent disastrous fires, or we can spend much more money fighting out-of-control blazes that threaten people, water, and wildlife.

As drought and climate change lead to more frequent and bigger fires, the U.S. Forest Service is consistently forced to borrow from next year’s prevention budget to fight this year’s blazes. The Wildfire Disaster Funding Act would break this damaging cycle.
