"Now that we've done the thinning, if a fire came through it would kill very few trees. It would stay low to the ground." -- Ken Thomas
John & Cathy Dummer are taking proactive forest management to the next level with a recent thinning project funded by NRCS.
NRCS is closely monitoring the drought and assisting farmers and ranchers with implementing voluntary conservation practices that help alleviate the drought's effects.
"By clearly identifying where we are going, what we need to do to get there, and when we have reached our goal, we can more effectively leverage and strategically deliver our conservation assistance. “ -- Ron Alvarado, State Conservationist
