Mechanic I agree with you and I see this in Washington state that I just moved to a year and a half ago. I’m not surprise that Washington has several wild fires that rage out of control every year and while I know it takes takes three things to have a fire, oxygen, heat, and fuel we can help reduce the amount of fuel by getting rid of downed and dead trees.

This should be allowed in all the states that the fed agencies are NOT taking care of. Get the “fuel” off the floors of our forests then the wildfires wouldn’t be nearly as devastating! Just saying…..
