For hundreds of years we've been disturbing the peace of the wilderness.
We burnt the forests... :(
We changed the ecosystem, impacting the fires effects, and it's occurrences.
We have inflicted many injustices on the wilderness.
Logging has shot the fuel amount up and made fuel ladders a real danger in the tahoe basin..
We've been putting out naturally occuring fires for the last 100 years.
People have left a massive imprint on the wildlife. You can see it everywhere you look.
We put out fires that kept the forests healthy all over the US, causing the fuel amount to rise.
We caused the forests to be too dense so that any fire that came through would turn into a massive crown fire and grow out of control.
Now we have taken action to restore the forest.
By evening out the ammount of fires using prescribed burns, we can control the fires and have less impact on the natural fire cycle
It's all about balancing the amount of fires there are in the basin.
As a result of many prescribed burns, dating back to 1970, the wilderness is returning to it's natural state.
Hopefully in the forests will be thinned and the house burn rate will be lowered
This is a proper forest
We fixed the forest!!
