Our forests are a treasured legacy providing the very necessities of life itself — clean air, healthy drinking water, a tolerable climate, and so much more. But these majestic lands are threatened by insects, disease, and devastating wildfires.

"Nature needs human help to connect those fragments and create the forest corridors," he said. "We need to do that as soon as possible."
