Gov. Brown orders major offensive against wildfire threat


Gov. Jerry Brown, alarmed by reports that climate change is dramatically increasing fire risk, on Thursday ordered an all-out attack by scientists, land managers, industry and the public on the dangerous conditions that helped spread last year’s devastating wildfires.

The executive order will launch a slate of projects to improve forest conditions and increase fire protection, including a doubling of the amount of land managed by controlled burns, tree thinning and other forest-management tactics.

Brown’s plan includes the following:

•Doubling the land actively managed through vegetation thinning, controlled fires and reforestation from 250,000 acres to 500,000 acres.

•Teaching landowners better ways to reduce vegetation and other forest-fire fuels on private lands.

• Streamlining the process for property owners to win permits to improve forest health and reduce forest-fire fuels on their land.

• Supporting the innovative use of forest products, including lumber and wood products for building, and organic matter for fuel and to generate electricity.

•Expanding grants, training and other incentives to improve watersheds.
