Arizona Republic Series Asks: Can We Save Arizona's Forests?

Since 2002, wildfires have burned through nearly 2 million acres of ponderosa pine forests in Arizona since 2002 — and the forests that are left are at risk.

For more on that, The Show sat down with Shaun McKinnon, who edited the series.
