The logging seen in first photo shows commercial salvage of fire killed trees on privately owned land.
Subsequent photos of standing dead trees are likely on USFS public lands where similar harvesting and subsequent re-planting is uncommon.

Those reforestation comments are applicable for wetter climates than the more arid eastern Sierra terrain of most of the Dixie Fire. Traveled tough 3 historic burns occurring within the last 6 years yesterday on eastern slopes. None had recovered as far as any noticeable evergreen growth. New sage and leafy brush in drainages was nice but burnt standing timber and blackened sage stumps was the dominant impression.
Much different than the impressive explosion of growth following the Mt.St.Helens explosion I saw within but a few months where there was an abundance of sun, nutrients and water.
