It only makes sense to selectively log and remove ground debris. Just like cleaning house

I am old enough to remember our beautiful forests when logging was in full swing. Just like a garden, the forests need to be tended. Wasn't that one of the first jobs given man in the Garden of Eden?

Do selective logging and clean up after it.

There are too many dead and dying trees in the forests. The forests are overgrown because there has been mismanagement for decades.

Who will pay to cut down dead trees?

it would be much better land management then what is happening at the present time: fewer fuel for fires.

Cutting down more trees will not end the drought, nor place more moisture in the air. It could make the forests drier thus creating more fires. Clearing out deadwood, creating more firebreaks, works

Thank you. You at least understand what pushes fires to be so deadly.

I don't think logging is the answer, that means only marketable timber. The thick small trees and underbrush are what causes the hotter fires. Thinning would be the answer.
