Letter: Wildfire prevention

To the editor:

I was reading an article on the Cortez Journal website about forest fires and how it is necessary for fire to clean up areas that have fire fuel that has built up over the past century due to suppression of wildland fires and forest fires doing more damage than what natural wildfires do to any ecosystem in the western U.S.

I would like anyone and everyone to read this article.

I learned about this article and I read it through the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University.

Thank you for your time.
