Growing out of forest restoration efforts around Helena, Montana, in 2014, a cooperative stewardship agreement between the state of Montana and the U. S. Forest Service was developed, the first of its kind in the United States.

Brian Kahn talks with three agency leaders who helped bring it about: Faye Krueger, Regional Forester for the Northern Region of the U.S. Forest Service; Bill Avey, Supervisor of the Helena and Lewis & Clark National Forests; and Bob Harrington, Montana's state forester in the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation's Forestry Division.
