    You cut, you stack.

    Burned trees from a forest fire, removed from the ecosystem instead of returning that compost to the soil to nourish the next generations.

    Criminal. Only one species has that level of hubris.

      Chipmunks?

      You have got to be joking, Marge. Where do you think lumber comes from? Do you own any furniture? Do you have a woodstove out at your farm?

      Wait, I guess you’re right. And the same thing goes for whatever crops you’re growing on your farm. Removing those crops is depleting the soil “instead of returning that compost” to “nourish the next generation” of crops. Yeah, I suppose it’s criminal hubris against your farm’s ecosystem to continue eating food then.

      BTW, the majority of soil nourishment comes from the “slash” (leaves, twigs, branches) which are removed at the logging site before hauling out the logs. The old dead wood is mostly lignin, which is highly resistant to rot. (That’s why they have to burn slash piles instead of leaving them to rot, the leaves and twigs might break down in a couple of years but the branches sit there for many years, creating a major fire hazard.) The leaves and the very thin layer of living wood is the part to be composted.

      In theory, I suppose they could strip the bark and run the branches through a wood chipper on site. And then, in addition to jacking up the price of lumber, the forests would all look like landscaping, instead of like forests. No thanks.

    I see a truck bunk and some cops up on the overpass, indicating those logs were literally raining down onto the freeway. That would make the driver lucky to be alive.

    Hirz and/or Delta Fires just north of Redding CA, 2018, if I’m not mistaken.

    Illegal alien w/o a CDL driving a pole truck, maintained by illegals, full of timber cut by illegals, loaded and secured by illegals. What could go wrong?

    Don’t log on when driving.

Play nice.
