Not as much lumber comes from out here as you might think. 40 years ago this area of Northern California was a major logging hub. Not anymore. Almost all of it was lost to Canadian imports. Ironically though when I bought some 2x4s at the local Home Depot they were marked as coming from an outfit still logging in WA. But I doubt the fires have found much activity to make a dent in. Certainly nothing like say 60 years ago.
There have been proposals to allow companies in to thin out the fuel, but I don't know that all that much has actually happened on that front.
And of all the ironies, what happens with the little activity there is left ....
