Forest health, fire, and water seminar – September 4th in Darrington

Posted by kevin.zobrist | May 18, 2019

What’s happening to our forests?

Increasing tree mortality and fire risk are serious threats to health and safety, water quality, and quality of life in Snohomish County. Dead and dying trees have proliferated throughout the county, especially with cedars, hemlocks, and maples. Wildfire and smoke are growing concerns. Could what happened in California happen here? Join local forest experts from UW and WSU at a free seminar to learn about what’s happening, why it’s happening, what it means for your property and your watershed, and what you should and should not be doing.
