    Global Warming allows mountain pine beetle to wipe out crucial, and very old whitebark forests at high altitude.

    Don't want to hit the "Thanks" button, but those are well captured and evocative.

    Not all forest fires are catastrophes. Several tree species out here in the western U.S., including the Ponderosa and Lodgepole pine, as well as the Giant Sequoia, depend on fire in order to reproduce. Their seed cones will only open under intense heat. But decades of fire suppression have unfortunately increased the likelihood of devastating crown fires. Smoky the Bear may have had the best of intentions, but...

    Of course, we humans reap what we sow. This summer in Ashland, where we are surrounded by forestland, was no picnic.

    Same problem here and added heat. Our recent local megafires are unprecedented for several thousand years and are devastating to topsoil and stream quality.
