Climate change has affected California forests

The climate has been really throwing everyone off their game in almost all of the states across the nation. The effects can be seen by the decline and disappearance of California forests.

California has suffered years of summer heat waves that have been drying the forests much more than usual. In addition, during the winter, the forests have not been able to recover because precipitation has been declining and disrupting the delicate and essential water system. In California, water is essential to sustain, not only the forests, but agriculture as well (vineyards, market gardening and livestock). The warmer the winters, the lower the rivers are and the worse the water conditions become. The climate change is affecting growth in all areas. Wild animals are finding it difficult to survive and are not reproducing normally.

Fire season is usually from spring to late autumn. This is the time when dry winds called the Diablo winds sweep across California. These winds fan the fires devastating homes and natural vegetation. Many areas of California have suffered repeated fires. Oakland, for example, has had devastating fires every 2 to 5 years since 1923. Many State Parks have also suffered irreparable damage.
