On Thursday California is seen to be in the fire that has impacted a large number of Sequoias trees. The firefighters have instantly moved to the location and helped to wrap the place with their fire-resistant blanket that has significantly helped the fire to stop.
What makes the situation problematic is the destroyed Sequoias trees. The wildfire has burned many of these old trees that have been living there for thousands of years.
The fire spokesperson, Rebecca Paterson, has reported that the famous Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park’s Giant Forest, the Giant Forest Museum, and other important buildings of the surrounding area have been affected by the wildfire. All these buildings have eventually been wrapped by flames that could have possibly left intense burning marks on them.
To stop the fire from affecting the environment, the officials are using Aluminium foils to wrap around all the important monuments and buildings. As the matter already has a high resistance against the heat, and even withhold intensive heating, it is preferred. The officials have reported that the technique sometimes gets helpful while sometimes doesn’t.
Recently when a wildfire broke out in the US, some of the homes got saved with their technique while others got brutally destroyed.
Moreover, the recent California Wildfire has been reported killing many Sequoias and many of them were very old enough, almost lived for a thousand years. This created disturbance among the environmentalist and the need for urgent action against this has taken
The spokesperson, Hopper released a statement regarding the fight and stated that when the wildfire broke on the Sequoia National park, it didn’t burn anything instantly but the fire grew over time. There were no smoke leaves of the fire and that’s why many of the officials didn’t find it out at the starting.
According to the National Park Service, the Sherman Tree is the world’s largest tree by volume, 1487 cubic meters.
