We’ve now completed all the video segments, which describe forest conditions in Colorado, related threats/challenges, and solutions to forest health problems.

This video was created in four parts, each about 7-11 minutes long. I encourage you to watch all four segments in sequence to get a broad feel for the entire video and its tone:
