Something I don't get (amongst many), I am sitting now in the most forested state in the USA. Maine. New England is six states. The other five can fit into Maine. One county here, Aroostook, is the size of Connecticut. 89% of maine is forrest. Mostly tinder-box pine. We are known as the Pine Tree State. The state flower is the pine cone and tassel. And we NEVER have forest fires, or wild fires whatever those are. NEVER. So what's with that? Or rather, what's with you in the Pacific North West?
