Assemblyman Wood Champions Bill to Protect Old Growth Oaks

Assemblyman Jim Wood’s bill AB 1958, which would update the Forest Practice Act to allow for restoration of California’s oak woodlands, recently passed through the Assembly Natural Resources Committee with unanimous support.

This bill was sponsored by the Northcoast Regional Land Trust and The Buckeye Conservancy, two local organizations committed to helping conserve working landscapes. Land Trust Executive Director, Michael Cipra said, “This bill proposes common sense solutions to enable private landowners – the stewards of more than 85% of oak woodlands in Humboldt County – to do the right thing and restore our oak woodlands.”

The University of California Cooperative Extension Humboldt-Del Norte Counties also acted as a technical advisor for this project - thank you to the many partners that helped!
