Fire Complex is a new project initiated after our community nestled in a Giant Sequoia Grove burned down alongside 170.000 acres of forest including many over 2000 year old Giant Sequoia trees. In memory of the unique ecosystem that has been destroyed, this work follows the aftermath of the fire, both the impact it had on the tight-knit community that has now been dispersed and the team of workers that have been brought in to clear up the debris, notably the work of the strike team employed to cut down those trees that are now endangering roads, power lines and the few buildings left standing.

For every damaged and/or dead tree removed posted on this site I would like to re-plant 100 new trees to help the area’s recovery.
