Removing trees can reduce fire danger, but the process presents its own issues. 

Like what happens to the land when the trees are removed. 

That was the central issue in a lawsuit filed years ago against the Ashland Forest Resiliency Project, meant to reduce the threat of wildfire in the city of Ashland's watershed. 

The project went on--it's still in progress--but courts found fault with the process. 

Two of the people involved in the suit join us to explain the objections.
