No fire char evident. Probably a stand that was hit by beetles. Pine beetles, bark beetles, spruce budworm, etc.......their state foresters know which ones are hitting where. Insects kill LOTS more forests than fires do every year, but not nearly as dramatic for the media.

Bugs. However, I'm sure some folks will undoubtedly blame HAARP, and/or chemtrails.

Not uncommon in Colorado.

These clowns are making it out to be far more than it is...

They're NOT "structures". It's random deadfall, exacerbated by wind, tall trees, insects, etc.

Walking through the woods, elk hunting, I've seen lots of deadfall like this...now, I didn't have an "electromagnetic detector" with me, so...I couldn't perceive the "toroidal field"...

crzy

A young pine woods kills off lots of trees as it matures, from 100's of trees per acre down to dozens. They don't always fall with the prevailing winds. We have a few spots where the trees are starting to stack up like this.

I do volunteer work for the Forest Service via the Backcountry Horsemen in the summer. We have cleared out old trails to re-open them and have seen dead-fall stacked 15-20 ft high in some places. One trail took us two full days just to go about 100 ft. Most of this is due to bark beetle damage and not thinning/logging.
