A finance tool at its core, the Forest Resilience Bond was developed to expedite the availability of funding for forest restoration on National Forest System lands. But as Blue Forest’s pilot project on the Tahoe National Forest is already demonstrating, the benefits of this model extend well beyond finance.
We entered 2018 eager to turn our years of researching and relationship building into action, a goal that was realized when we launched our first pilot project in November in the Tahoe National Forest. Learn more in our Impact Report.
Investors Think They Can Make Money Reducing Wildfire Risk. A Forest Restoration Project in Tahoe National Forest Puts this Idea into Practice.
The Yuba Water Agency (YWA) provides water, flood control and hydropower for communities in Northern California, and serves as a supplementary source for cities and farms across California in dry years through its water transfer program.
For the agency and everyone they serve, wildfires are bad news. In addition to endangering YWA’s workers and customers, sediment from a wildfire could clog the agency’s reservoir, damaging its infrastructure and increasing operating costs.
