Yes, that is what the Forest Rangers are suppose to do however if the have to cut down trees they should get the money to save the wood to put in houses or something. God gives the forest for us and so far the Department of the Interior does not have a good way to stop people setting fires but if the forest was not so full of under growth it could be stopped faster. How many houses are going to burn down before we get we have to manage a natural resources. That is what the California Forest Rangers should do and the Federal Government should do. What is the point of having them if they don't manage those trees? People should also manage their property. There are someone dad or mother putting forth their lives to save other people's lives. They all need to work together to live out there. It should also be taught in schools to love the forest and how this is their responsibility to make sure they have it in the future.
