Combat Wildfire Risk through Sustainable Forest Management

Target: Joe Tyler, Director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection

Goal: Implement comprehensive sustainable forest management practices to mitigate wildfire risk in the Sierra Nevada region.

The Sierra Nevada region in California faces an escalating wildfire crisis of unprecedented magnitude. Current forest conditions have created a tinderbox environment, where the convergence of climate change-induced droughts, invasive species proliferation, and accumulated fuel loads has elevated the risk of catastrophic wildfires to an alarming level.

Historical forest management practices, including fire suppression and a lack of proactive measures, have led to a dangerous buildup of flammable vegetation. This has not only imperiled the health of the forests, but also the safety of the communities, wildlife habitats, and vital water sources.

Inaction is no longer an option. The Sierra Nevada’s ecosystems, water supplies, and the safety of its residents are in jeopardy. The urgent need for sustainable forest management is evident.

Sign the petition below to demand immediate action to combat wildfire risk through sustainable forest management in the Sierra Nevada region.


Dear Director Tyler,

The time for decisive action to protect the Sierra Nevada region from devastating wildfires is upon us. The escalating wildfire crisis threatens not only the irreplaceable ecosystems, but also the safety and well-being of the communities.

Historical forest management practices have contributed to the dire situation we face today, with an abundance of fuel loads and increasingly inhospitable conditions. We cannot afford to wait any longer.

We urge you to lead the charge in implementing comprehensive sustainable forest management practices. These measures must include controlled burns, fuel reduction efforts, and the restoration of native vegetation to safeguard the forests, water sources, and the lives of those who call this region home.

The Sierra Nevada’s legacy is at stake, and the responsibility to act rests upon our shoulders. Let us not be remembered as the generation that allowed the Sierra Nevada to succumb to the flames.

  1. Don’t we already have people hired to maintain our forests? If they are not effective then fire them and hire new talent. I get angry when asked constantly asked to donate to this cause or that cause only to find out this is on top of paying that person’s salary. Those supported by government need to work as hard as we do outside in the field of real life! Start producing a more effective plan which safeguards our forests or walk away. If you are ineffective we don’t need you!
