I have a similar story to this. I lived on a farm in Oregon, about 30 minutes from the capitol waaay out in the country. A neighbor purchased a forested piece of property adjacent to ours, about 160 acres. The guy had just inherited his share of some huge fortune, and decided to play cowboy.
He bought a 35 ton bulldozer and spent the next 9 months bulldozing all of the trees into a large pile about 40 feet tall, then proceeded to burn it all. 40' fir trees and 200 yea old oaks.
It took 3 and a half years for the fires to go out...

Needless to say we were pretty pissed at that guy. Every time I drive down to california, I am reminded of the same assholes.
