BOISE -- During this year's Live Tour we gave you a sneak peek at the Boise National Forest following the massive Trinity Ridge Fire last fall.

New video shot from a helicopter Friday shows the rehabilitation effort is now underway. There was 143,000 acres of forest that burned, but only a small percentage of the charred land will get this type of rehab work.

Two helicopters are being used to drop weed-free wheat straw on the soil in areas at high risk for erosion and flash flooding.

The emergency rehab is expected to cost $800,000, and should be complete by this Sunday.
