Where California sees dead trees, others see furniture and houses
The new gold rush: Loggers see money growing on millions of dead treesI have been suggested this as a way to deal with a problem California is having and it appears others have taken up the cause. Texas experienced a drought a few years ago and I did the same thing with trees on my property, turning the dead ones into either furniture or firewood. California could also reduce the risk of forest fires by allowing loggers to clean out some of the overgrown tracks.
Workers are coming from across the country to cut California’s drought-stricken forests, offering a silver lining to what has been an ecological tragedy.
