Every year, there are HUGE wildfires in California.. Thousands of acres burnt to the ground.. every year.. I know it takes many years to regrow the trees.. how has California not yet run out of woodsy areas to burn?

Southern California has wildfires that are fueled by brush and some trees. Santa Ana winds push hot air from the deserts to the ocean and if a fire starts they push them. In 1976 my future in laws had to evacuate their house due to a fire from Camp Pendleton. No trees in sight and it stopped at their fence. Seeing the sky glow red 1/2 mile from the ocean at night is seared in my memory. Plant system is referred to chaparral.
A couple years ago leaving LA I missed a wild fire that shutdown the freeway by about 15 minutes. It ran the hills and burned some cars on the freeway.

I mention these two because California has 3 different type of areas that burn.

Brush area, Chaparral, look at Camp Pendleton as an example.

Brush with oaks and other trees . Laguna Canyon not far from Camp Pendleton had a major fire that was fueled this way imo.

Forrest fires....big trees .

All 3 can and do happen this time of year.
