Fire prevention is part of the reason why we are in this situation. These forests need to have occasional natural fires or the undergrowth builds up to create out of control inferno. Some controlled burning and management of foresters are fine, but there is a line between active management of helping these natural process and trying to fight or subver them with often disastrous results. Logging is fine, but only in areas that support the impact of it in a reasonable and sparse way. We have areas referred to as tree farms for a reason that are set up for exactly this purpose.
