Pine beetle possible breakthrough



LawnSite Fanatic
I do like the aspect of the new growth for wildlife. In the grand scheme of things, these pines are not very old though. I'm assuming 30-60 years. One problem is with all the dead trees there is enormous amounts of fuel throughout the forest and on the forest floor. It would be nice if some new jobs would be created to clear the dead trees a little faster. Summit County is ripe for a devastating forest fire with all the dead trees.

After reading the article, I'm pessimestic. I just don't see it working. You did make a good point with creating jobs to clear the dead trees.
