An alphabet soup of efforts is emerging from the government bureaucracy. For starters is CFLRP - Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program. That spawned DLRP - Dinky Landscape Restoration Project.
So, what does this mean? In short, they are efforts to restore the forest to a "natural" state by reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfire. Using the term "catastrophic wildfire" does raise the hackles of a number on the preservation side as in their view, wildfires are not catastrophic; they are either natural or unnatural. As I understand, a natural wildfire burns desired litter and understory while and unnatural wildfire burns everything; meaning it is catastrophic due to the amount it burns.
