The author reflects on the studies released by a government agency which states the significance of the trees in the Pacific Northwest of California to gathering vast volumes of CO2 gas. He comments on the report that thinning or removing out the trees would yield into a reduction of trees' ability to produce carbon. He also mentions the problems of budget in California as well as its politics.
