Largest USFS forest restoration reaches milestone in Arizona

U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell said that the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI), the largest landscape-scale restoration initiative of its kind, has reached a pivotal milestone towards achieving accelerated forest restoration on more than 500,000 acres of the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests and grasslands in Arizona.

The Forest Service is accelerating the restoration and management of our national forests, despite budgetary challenges, using innovative and collaborative strategies to work across large landscapes,” said USDA Under Secretary for Natural Resources and the Environment Robert Bonnie.

The 4FRI project is one of the best examples of this approach, and we appreciate the hard work and participation of the many employees and partners who have worked to achieve this milestone,” she continued.
