Thinning To Reduce Fire Danger And Produce Fuel
The concept of "fire season" has become more fluid over the years, particularly in California.
Unusually warm weather with little precipitation means parts of the state are prone to wildfire year-round.

That involves reducing the fuel loads in the forests of the Sierra Nevada, which involves cutting at least some trees.
Brian Dahle visits by phone to flesh out his idea.
