Share this article

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Friday to address the effects of the climate crisis on America’s forests.

According to a release, the order will focus on reducing the risks of wildfires, combating global deforestation, and using nature’s resources to lessen pollution.

The order will require federal officials to carry out the first-ever inventory of mature and old-growth forests on federal lands, which will take into account the threats to forests from wildfires and climate change, the White House said.

The Agriculture, Commerce, and Interior departments are also expected to work in partnership with private companies as well as local, state, tribal, and territorial governments to increase the economic potential of forests through the creation of jobs in outdoor recreation and within sustainable wood, paper, and other forest products.

The order also directs federal officials to set reforestation goals for 2030 and utilize nature-based solutions to help achieve them. This includes everything from restoring marshes to planting shade trees to promoting drought-resistant crops.
