Arizona Wildlife Federation podcaster Michael Cravens interviews Tom O'Halleran about forest health in northern Arizona.

With catastrophic wildfires threating Arizona’s communities and forests earlier every year, managing our forests for resiliency in a changing climate is more important than ever.

In this podcast, the Arizona Wildlife Federation sits down with Congressman Tom O'Halleran of Arizona’s 1st congressional district and Nature Conservancy Forest Ecologist, Travis Woolley to discuss why we are seeing increasingly catastrophic fires along with the methods and tactics employed to make our forests more resilient to them.
