I recently caught the last part of a diccussion on CNN or
MSNBC concerning a consideration for a policy change for
national parks and forrests - concerning the burning of
DOWNED wood . . .
Due to all the fires - greatly fueled by the debris on the
forrest floors - NPS and Forrest service was re-thinking
the policy - and in fact was considering the fact that
a NO Burn policy has contributed to the fires.
Any one else catch that ? Or have any updates?
