From the Green’s home we walked straight up a hill, bushwhacking our way through thick brush, trees, thorns and poison ivy, until we emerged at this clearing in the forest. This gap in the green landscape was littered with fallen tree trunks. It was no more than a ten minute walk from the Green’s.

A panoramic view of a logging site less than half a mile above Randy and Joan Green’s house. Without trees to absorb rainwater, there is a higher risk of flash flooding. The Greens are concerned about mud and debris washing down the hill and are unsure how long they will be able to remain in their home.
