Logging, thinning are not the answer to summer wildfire

Logging, thinning are not the answer to summer wildfire.

There is a rash of misunderstanding about forest ecosystems. Many agencies and timber companies are advocating logging/thinning to “restore” forest health. However, I know of no forest that evolved with chainsaws. These timber advocates are exploiting the public’s natural fear of wildfire.

Contrary to what dominates the media today, logging/thinning only degrades forest ecosystems in multiple ways.
