those 95,000 acres that we operate. neal fisher is the western resource manager for the collins pine company in chester in plumas county, about 10% of the land burned in the dixie fire belongs to his company. if you turn the camera around, you can see a lot of lumber stocked on what we call or log roll out that's normally a place where we unload large trucks. we currently are storing lumber that has not been dried yet. in our drawing systems because we have so daryn, much now it's a race to get the burned trees. out of the forest. we have to move quickly. we have a range of time where and we think between. >> say 9 and maybe 30 months of time. we have to get all that long taken care of before. we think it will be too far deteriorated to be recoverable as an economic asset. >> collins produces about 90 million board feet of lumber a year. this year
showing us the inner workings of the operations although. just down the road. >> this we're something very unique is taking place. in this particular area about 4 miles south of the town of chester. you can see it was hit very hard by the dixie fire. a lot of the trees. >> already cut down in the thin force we see behind this eventually will all be gone. but that is when they're reforestation efforts begin. and when it comes to this particular area and for this particular company, the future is pretty promising. it's also pretty exciting because something like this is really never been done before on this type of scale. >> that's because unlike traditional forest management, when it's time to replant trees here, the land will be a blank canvas, offering up a chance to try something new, something that may change how this kind of work is done for decades to come here and
elsewhere, rehabilitating the forest and involves preparing it for those seedlings. but also involves the planning around what's pieces of trees you're going to plant and at what densities so that you ensure that those trees can grow freely in the future. a recent study out of uc davis concludes that in order to help protect forests against fires and make them more resilient. >> the forests in some cases should be reduced by as much as 80%. historical data shows the southern and central sierra nevada, along with the sequoyah and stannis last national forests. >> so their respective forest densities increase 67 fold from 1911. it's a 2011 with less trees in a forested area. there's less competition for water that planning component needs to take into consideration what we know to be in current climate change and what we know. the temperature regimes are doing. and so we're planning ahead for that. we're looking replanting was species that we know are are more tolerant to
high temperatures that more tar to less water being available. the dixie fire has changed many lives. >> they may also have helped change an entire industry as well in plumas county. eric rucker. >> tomorrow night on kron, 4 news at 9.10. the important action being taken right now to reduce the risk in the next wildfire season will take you into the farce and show you the mitigation efforts underway all winter long, including purposely setting fires like they're doing in this video. i'm about to do in order to protect all of us. and this happened just a few days ago. >> we have some breaking news to tell you about out of oroville in butte county, where a shooting has injured a number of people. authorities say someone opened fire just before 8 o'clock tonight. as of right now, at least 5 people have been shot. that is according to reports out of
