EASI can restore forest burn zones through restoration and replanting. This restores important ecosystem services such as clean air, water quality, flood control and carbon sequestration. Rehabilitating burn zones minimizes landscape-scale soil erosion leading to:
- Loss of nutrients
- Mud and rockslides
- Watershed siltation
- Lost native biodiversity
- Depressed water quality
- Extended ecological succession
Reestablishing vegetation cover is the most important first step to recovering landscape ecosystem health.
Private sector investments in burn zone rehabilitation could be exchanged for forest & grassland carbon credits, alongside wetland & stream, conservation and water quality compensatory mitigation credits (CMCs).
