forest service grant NAU

As climate change and drought cause severe wildfires and degrade forest health, researchers at Northern Arizona University’s Ecological Restoration Institute are working on sustainable solutions.

NAU professor Han-Sup Han recently received a $260,000 award from the U.S. Forest Service for a two-year project designed to reduce wildfire risk, develop the wood products market, invest in rural economies and increase forest restoration treatments across Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado.

The Wood Innovations Grant is part of a $7.62 million Forest Service investment to advance innovations in wood products that create jobs, revitalize local economies and support sustainable forest land management.
