Restoring Our Forests: It’s Urgent

Since 2010, high intensity fires have burned more than 900,000 acres of Arizona forest lands. The largest in Arizona history, the Wallow Fire in the White Mountains, burned almost 539,000 acres.

Other severe recent fires included the Schultz Fire near Flagstaff, the Horsehoe 2 Fire in the Chiricahua Mountains, and the Monument Fire near Sierra Vista.

The most severe of these fires burned homes, forced evacuations, restricted recreation, forced wildlife relocations and caused damaging erosion. The economic impact to Arizona citizens and businesses counted in the millions of dollars.
