Anchor Forestry is the application of tribal forestry over multiple ownership landscapes for the benefit of all. This video is the third in our four-part series on anchor forests.

We recognize climate change and our need to adjust our practices to reflect the changing environmental conditions in our forests. Anchor Forest practices apply innovative science to address the current trends in climate change and wildfire. When we lack the resources to fight fire in the initial attack status, then we lose the ability to prevent the exponential increase in damage from wildfire.

The value of proactive forest management ensures not only the health of our traditional territory but reserves private and public land as well. We need to prepare and adjust and to the challenges that climate change brings us - this is the cornerstone of sustainable forest management.
