Tree Mortality Task Force
Fighting the Good Fight for California's Forests
Though the drought emergency is over, tree mortality remains a steadfast problem. The good news? A dedicated interdisciplinary team representing all levels of government is working tirelessly to fight it.
Counties make up an important component of the Governor’s Tree Mortality Task Force, which continues to meet regularly. At the most recent meeting on Monday, the U.S. Forest Service, utility companies, Cal Trans, and Cal Fire provided updates. The recent heavy storms have made some tree work more difficult, as road issues cropped up. However, this may also present opportunities – like working on road damage and tree removal in the same area.
