What happens to a forestry community in the aftermath of a disaster?


When Hurricane Michael struck the Florida Panhandle in October 2018 the category 5 storm wiped out more than $1 billion worth of timber. The community is still waiting for federal assistance as the 2019 hurricane season begins. The dead trees also present another risk: wildfires. The dead trees also mean that the panhandle is facing heightened wildfire risk, as a new hurricane season arrives.
