Since 2015, forest fires have burned more than 33 million acres in the US - an area larger than Louisiana. So why are we seeing so many fires? And why are there billions of dead trees across the western United States and Canada? The guys tackle those questions and more in this episode. Topics include the Forest Reserve Act, Forest Service Organic Act, Gifford Pinchot's vision, clear-cutting, pine beetles, drought, NEPA, Multiple Use-Sustained Yield Act, National Forest Management Act, the future of forest management- and so much more.
