|Death Of A Forest: Why we Should Care California wildfires also permanently deforested 882,759 acres of public and private land during the seven years covered by this study. Permanently deforested means burned forests that cannot recover naturally due to the lack of seed trees. Trees were planted on only 120,755 acres. As a result, California's forests are disappearing at the rate of 109,000 acres each year, and the greenhouse gases they emitted from wildfires will stay in the atmosphere for centuries.... I also used FCEM to look at the bigger picture by estimating seven years of combustion and post-fir decay emissions from wildfires for the entire state of California. The results show that greenhouse gas emissions were the equivalent of driving 50 million cars for one year. There are only 14 million cars on California's highways. That means they would all have to be taken off the road and locked in a garage for 3 1/2 years to make up for accumulated emissions of just a few years of California's wildfires.|
|On Jan 23, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) on January 23 approved the emergency regulations submitted by the Board of Forestry, which implement the State Responsibility Area (SRA) fees mandated by Assembly Bill 29X (Blumenfield) and are now in effect. The regulations include a charge of $150 per residential structure, with a $35 discount for those located in a local fire protection district. Text of the regulations may be viewed on the Board of Forestrys website: The Board of Forestry now has 180 days to complete draft permanent regulations and begin the public input process once more before finalizing regulations AB 1506 LaMalfa Coauthors Repeal of Rural Fire Tax eliminates the State Responsibility Area fee of up to $150 per habitable structure in rural areas of California. new emergency proposal Armstrong Comment; County Comment; Nielsen Denounces Board Approval Of $150 SRA Fire Tax]|

- Understanding condition class - The three classes of condition class (low-, medium-, and high-risk) are categorized by five fire regimes (I, II, III, IV, V) according to the historical pattern of fire in forests. The condition classes indicate the departure from normal fire return intervals, and the greater the departure the greater the level of risk.
