ROLLA — Mark Twain National Forest will continue its climate adaptation and forest restoration processes, with potential boosts from a new national plan.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced a strategy for how the Biden-Harris Administration, through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will address a reforestation backlog of 4,000,000 acres on national forests and plant more than one billion trees over the next decade.
With new resources made available through Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law — combined with support from state, local, and Tribal governments as well as other partners — the US Forest Service aims to eliminate the backlog over the next 10 years and develop the infrastructure, such as nurseries, to keep up with increasing reforestation needs.
