Agriculture Secretary Ann M.Veneman recently announced the release of $305 million to the Forest Service to implement the agency’s National Fire Plan. The funds are slated for fuel management projects to safeguard communities and decrease the unnaturally dense forest vegetation that has accumulated from decades of wildland fire suppression. The funds will also be used to restore and rehabilitate areas damaged by wildfires and to maintain both current fire facilities and the construction of new ones to further improve firefighting capacity.
