    In their Policy Forum "Reform forest fire management" (18 September, p. 1280), M. P. North et al. highlight public support and improved spatial planning as key leverage points to deemphasize fire exclusion and expand beneficial fire. Although these steps are necessary, we caution that they are insufficient to overcome barriers to change.
