  • The State of California: Ep 2 'How Did We Get Here?' | One Tree Planted

    Posted on in category Film

    Episode 02: How did we get here?

    California is notorious for its wildfires. California is a fire-adapted ecology and many of the ecosystems across the state rely on fire to reproduce, establish and spread seed. However, 100 years ago, forest management policies changed, leading to increased fuel loads in forests and the use of fossil fuels has led to a drier and hotter climate for more months of the year. This legacy of fire suppression and a changing climate have led to an increase in the number and severity of forest fires across the state.

    In Episode 02, we speak with forestry experts on the frontlines of protecting California’s ecosystems through research, policy, and grassroots action. Series overview: The State…
