Since 2012, record drought and record temperatures, have weakened trees throughout California, resulting in millions of acres of failing forestland that then become vulnerable to disease and infestation. Infestation, such as those caused by native bark beetles, have caused tree mortality of epidemic proportions.
The scale of tree mortality in California contributes to significantly increased wildfire risks, and presents life safety risks due to falling trees that can injure or kill people.
Due to these increased risks, California and Tulare County have proclaimed states of emergency for tree mortality.
