    We need to expand this strategy to all areas of California. Our forests are overcrowded and using far more water that they should not to mention creating a fire hazard.

    While it seems like a good idea, looking at the tree sizes, you have to wonder what the tree removal will do to other species living in the area, besides saving water. Currently, there is a US project to remove tamarisk trees from the waterways in the southwest. The problem is that native birds have adapted to these trees over the decades and now the tamarisk tree removal comes with a very large price for the native fauna. My question is this: While trying to do a good deed with the non-native tree removal, what are we harming along with the good deed?
