Our products clear the forest of dead and decomposing trees that release carbon dioxide and serve as a volatile fuel for wildfires.
This is a tree after it has been infested with bark beetles, they burrow into the tree, “kill” it, preventing it from absorbing future carbon.
Once the beetles infect the wood they leave a fungus behind that creates a bluish hue. The fungus is then heated and removed from the wood leaving behind a unique color.

"'Literally the most destructive, the largest and the deadliest fires occurred this year — within the last few months. It is very indicative of the conditions that we are facing. In my 30-plus year career these kinds of fires were the exception to the rule. It would be an exception to have a fire that was 100,000 acres. That would be a major fire. Now we are getting multiple 100,000-acre fires at a time.'"
