    WHEN IT comes to the importance of clearing dead and diseased trees as a fire prevention step, Wayne Williams of San Diego County, California is living (and breathing) it. “I was walking around the fire zone, and where residents had cleared spaces around their homes, the house was usually saved,” says Williams. “Houses without a firebreak, or on a ridge (where fire can leap out of a canyon), were ...

  • Texas disposal/recycling firm is wild about coexistence

They did so by being up ...
