Can you believe it? Firefighters wrap worlds largest tree in tin foil. Okay, maybe not tin foil specifically, but a scientific aluminum based sheeting that is incredibly fireproof. Incredible, but also why? The wildfires in California are going crazy and in an attempt to protect the largest tree in the world, General Sherman, they have wrapped the base in this fireproof aluminum based stuff.
Firefighters Wrap Worlds Largest Tree In Tin Foil, But Is It Safe?
Quite frankly, I don’t know if the tree is safe from the wildfires. The only picture posted is the Aluminum sheeting around the base of the worlds largest tree, General Sherman. Sequoias, the type of tree General Sherman is, are naturally resistant to fire, but this one is really hot and they have burned down before. Is wrapping the base enough to protect it from a hot fire? I want better standards for our forests but in order to do that we have to all work together. Theres not that many firefighters, and they have so much work to do. If something is threatening our life, I feel we should all work together to make it better.
How Would We Protect The Forests?
I feel everyone should be involved in what way they can. Wether its being out there or coming up with efficient ideas to stop them. But if this is a plan and the fires are man made, there’s nothing getting everyone together could do besides stop them from burning our forests. There are a lot of theories about how these wildfires started and I would hope they are actually wild. But in either case everyone getting involved is the best option to stop our forests from being burned down and taking lives & houses with them.
