    Apparently so. That's 1500 miles from me. A bunch of small fires in Ontario, one large one but it's way up in the wilderness.

    We haven't had rain for at least two weeks and it's been quite warm for this time of year.

    I sure hope is going to be a better year for the folks up in the PNW and California.

    It's going to be a bad one here this year. South and Central Cascades are at about 45% of annual snowpack and the snow is pretty much gone at elevations under 5,000'.

    There's some pretty extensive reading on the national outlook here, which includes Canada and Mexico: https://www.predictiveservices.nifc.gov/outlooks/NA_Outlook.pdf

    The main areas forecast to get hit hard here are central Oregon, central and northern California, eastern and northern Washington, Great Basin (southern Idaho/northern
    and eastern Nevada/western and northern Utah/western and southern Wyoming), and the Rocky Mountain states. The southwest is getting hammered pretty good right
    now, but not as bad as last year.

    Late season fires will be particularly bad here for southern Oregon and California, northern Washington, and western Idaho.

    Cut this Last summer before the fire.
    Now we are back salvaging the young timber after it burned. I didn't think we would be cutting them for a while 20200727_113414.jpg 20210521_054623.jpg g trees

    This should be interesting I wonder who will be the first to require it in the PNW.

    I’ve seen that. Looks like it would work in perfect, perfect, perfect conditions. Not the broke up, rugged ground that we can have here with varying tree sizes. Interesting though.

    New Zealand is requiring no one on the ground by 2025 so like I said it maybe a requirement out here vs what’s really right.

    Yeah...I’d say a lot of our coast ground isn’t going to agree with that. I’ll leave it at that.

    My brother and the Komatsu hard at work knocking over some pines to widen a driveway and my 562 waiting to buck them up. I wanted to drop them, but it's easier to pop the rootball with the trunk still attached so no dice.
