It’s difficult to describe how beautiful Joshua trees are, but when you drive into Joshua Tree National Park and see vast canyons filled with gangly arms, raised in haphazard directions, it hits you: this tree is different, this tree is special.What you might not know is this: the Joshua tree is...
Now, I am very familiar with the growing conditions put forth by the CBD and their claims about being endangered. They refuse to acknowledge the existence of trees out side their defined growing area, even though they exist. They also refuse to accept that the trees grow back after fires.
This article is full of falsehoods and lies in the name of Environazism. Notice how the author claims that the fire that burned in the Mohave Preserve was due to high temperatures, a lack of rain, and lightning? Odds are that the area had higher than normal rainfall this year that fueled a higher than normal crop of annual grasses that actually fueled the fire spread caused by lightning. This area usually has no annual grasses left on the ground by the beginning of July, but this year, not only was their still grasses, they were not even cured all the way when this fire started. To say that the area between Highway 15 and highway 40 in Eastern San Bernardino County had high temperatures in July as part of the problem is a bit of a stretch as well, if it is under 100 degrees there during the day any day in July, it was cool. This attempt by the CBD to get the Joshua Tree listed is a huge threat to our recreation and is based on biased science and simple lies.
