So they don't fall on people in a crowded camping area.

Yeah, but what do they do with them ? Cut them up for firewood ?

They pack them out.

Just kidding. Most likely they are just cutting some diseased trees that look like they might fall on someone. Helicoptering them out would be too expensive. There's no roads there that I know of. My guess is that they'll just fall them off to the side and let nature takes it's course.

The campground is crisscrossed with downed trees.
I'd guess a lot of the cut down trees are just left on the ground.
However there are also a LOT of cut-up tree lengths that make good seats and food prep tables. I think there'll be a lot more of of them after this.
