I was commissioned to make a infographic and website for the Center for the Force Majeure's initiative called Saving the West. This initiative takes up the important challenge of creating a new relationship between the timber industry and forest health. Since our forests are full of small diameter trees due to bad historic management practices, they are now prone to catastrophic fires. This is a initiative to use our knowledge of forest ecology to carefully thin our forests, eliminating the need for clearcutting, and increasing forest health and biodiversity while revitalizing rural economies.

This layout was designed to tell a very complex socio-ecological story in a single composition of images.
