@Harry Henderson, leave the comedy to the professionals
@dj evolve fan club, hey man, it was a good joke. Leaf him alone.
@Harry Henderson, ugh ticks are fücking gross. THE TICK is born
@Bronts Doggo, thanks for being the only one who gets my joke
Not mad though
This is why controlled burns and proper land management is a thing. Take notes California, this is how wildfires get so bad.
@AverageIdiot, so I agree with you halfway. They do indeed do controlled burns in California. The problem arises in that the sequoia trees aka redwoods actually need fires to make the ash required to grow their seeds. We also have a big problem of climate change killing these trees at an alarming rate. Yosemite had the world's top scientist come together and they concluded the only way to save the redwoods is to mass farm them higher up the mountains. Before then, they didn't want to intrude with nature. But unfortunately it's to a point that they have no choice. Also, when Lincoln first saw the sequoias, he made it so that they had to do everything to stop wildfires to keep them safe, but as we know now and I said above, that actually made it worse for the trees.
The other issue, as you'll see in tornado Valley, is too much sprawl of humans. Where wildfires used to be a problem but not as dangerous, we now have many more suburbs in places they weren't before. That, in combination with climate change, makes things more dangerous. So now the state of California is stuck trying to let nature be nature but also not kill people.
Personally, I hate suburbs and sprawl and think we should rebuild older parts of cities and towns instead of wasting that land and taking away new land that earlier humans realized wasn't smart to live in because, y'know, fires. I'm hoping it stops thanks to the mass exodus of people leaving the state.
Sorry for the long comments, but there's a lot to this issue and it's not black and white.
