Redwood National Park Tree Cutting

NPS/Public Domain

The distinction between national park and national forest is often lost on people who live close to neither. 

Here's an easy one: trees can be cut in the forests, seldom in the parks. 

But a forest restoration plan in the Redwood National Parkwould actually remove some trees from the park in Humboldt County, ostensibly to promote forest growth. 

A Park officer joins us with details of the plan and its progress.
