Well we don't see a whole lot of major wildfire activity east of the Mississippi. There are many different factors that prevent fires. For one, it is very difficult to sustain a large fire when so much of the eastern part of the U.S. has been paved. The U.S. has been acting as the overflow for many overpopulated countries. We are importing millions of people each year. We seem to have no interest in border control. Open the flood gates and let them in. As our population continues to grow we will eventually need to knock down many of those pesky fire causing trees. The best way to prevent forest fires is to pave the forest. It's flawless. It works everytime.
