Interior Develops Reforestation Plan

Bureau of Land Management working with American Forests organization in California.

The Interior Department announced on Tuesday that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has coordinated with American Forests on a reforestation plan after the Camp Fire in California. BLM stated, “The 2018 Camp Fire burned more than 153,000 acres, killed 85 people, and destroyed more than 18,000 structures in Butte County, California.”

“This plan will assist foresters who are implementing recovery actions to the burn scar, such as tree planting and managing vegetation,” said BLM California State Forester Coreen Francis. “The BLM and American Forests engaged stakeholders from private industry, the community, research scientists, and other agencies in developing the plan and formulating the suite of actions needed for long-term forest recovery.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland to seek God’s direction in the reforestation efforts.
  • For officials in the Bureau of Land Management as they seek to restore the devastated lands.
