Forest Dilemma-Disaster Looms

Wildfire prevention takes a backseat in Calif.,
Lake Tahoe News, April 3, 2018.

 

THE SITUATION

“It’s a ticking time bomb.”
"California is grappling with the counterintuitive dilemma of too many trees, packed too closely together, robbed of the space they need to thrive—and with how to clear out more than 100 million dead trees, felled by drought or insects, that provide tinder for the next infernos."

"...unhealthy forests..."
"A 19th-century California forest would have held fewer than 50 trees an acre. Today the state’s forests have grown to an unnatural 300 to 500 trees an acre, or more. That doesn’t count the 2 million drought-stressed trees a month lost to bark beetles that have killed entire stands."
