ECO-CRASH NEWS: TREE MORTALITY

High Sierra Carnage

Forest Campgrounds Dramatically Altered

Going camping this summer? You can't tell the forest from the logs and stumps,
Fresno Bee, June 1, 2018.

"No area sustained more conifer casualties than the Sierra National Forest, home to nearly 32 million dead trees according to a U.S. Forest Service report."

 

THE BOTTOM LINE
The low Winter snowpack, the increased average temps, and the massive and ongoing Sierra tree mortality gives this Summer and upcoming Fall the potential to present heightened snag dangers to campers, hikers, backpackers and horsemen, while continuing to contribute to setting wildfire records in California and the High Sierra.
