Burning On Purpose: Klamath TREX

After a long and costly fire season, few people want to talk about burning trees.  Unless it's their job to do so. 

We're reminded frequently that fire is a natural part of life in our forests, and the Western Klamath Restoration Partnership is right in the middle of its annual training exchange, or TREX. 

The 13-day event involves controlled burns and many other activities related to fire-adapted ecosystems.  Paul Lopez, Amah Mutsun Tribal member and third-time TREX participant, joins us to give details.
