    We need to go back to fire salvage logging right after a fire, and log off beetle-killed trees ASAP
    The vast majority of these fires are currently burning in old burn scars that have not been fire salvaged and in beetle-killed areas
    Until these 2 issues are addressed as a #1 priority, we will only be throwing good money away, and the maga-fires will continue as a “norm”
