To cut or not to cut, a debate on logging the Los Padres National Forest

Hosted by

In a tweet earlier this month, President Donald Trump called for California to cut down more trees in order to slow down the spread of wildfires. But, thinning forests often means bringing in commercial logging companies -- which is something conservationists don’t want to see on public land. We touch base on a fuel reduction project proposed in the Los Padres National Forest.
