BLM & the forest service needs to get their act together. They have sold the timber 7 years ahead to the large companies, quit trying to make a buck and start doing this clearing, they have the manpower. Lake Tahoe, CA has so much fuel ( bark beetles) that 1 spark will set off a fire. CA also has the California Conservation Core,use them. Instead of letting gangs get stronger in jail use them in a chain gang instead, free labor.
