USDA Forest Service and State of Utah sign Shared Stewardship Agreement

"Agreements like this appear good on paper but must have action and  
consequences" comments UFWDA Director of Environmental Affairs, Jerry Smith.
"The USFS must make a complete reversal of its "Protect and
Preserve" philosophy before anything of value will happen in our  
severely unhealthy forests."

As part of this Shared Stewardship Agreement, the State of Utah and  the USDA Forest Service are working together to identify and map  priority landscapes that will guide activities across jurisdictional  boundaries. Utah and the Forest Service will work in partnership to  restore these priority landscapes using all tools available, including  existing programs such as Utah’s Watershed Restoration Initiative and  the Governor’s Catastrophic Wildfire Reduction Strategy.
“This agreement is about setting priorities together and combining  resources to achieve healthier forests for the people of Utah,” said  Secretary Perdue. “We will use every available authority and tool at our  disposal to support partnership efforts to improve forest health and  target treatments in areas with the highest payoffs. We want to leave  America’s forests better than we found them and that means creating  meaningful stewardship partnerships that proactively keep our forests  healthy.”
