California also knows about wildfires, most of which occur on Federal or Private property, California owns very little land compared to the Federal Government.

Very educative documentary, thanks moomin ^^

Especially about :

- back burning firefighting
- soil management to prevent the most dangerous crown fires
- protective uninflammable tree rings surrounding communities and urban/industrial structures

Not sure yet if this doc discusses ways to fight ambers propagated by firestorms and winds (beyond soil management and cutting low-hanging branches of highly flammable tree species) but I sure would love to find a fully translated version of this informative documentary ^^
