Trees are good for the environment, but bad in other ways.
Update, December 30, 7:00 a.m.: Details are starting to come forward about the young Fullerton male who died from a snowboarding accident. Authorities are saying that when the 24-year-old collided with trees, he was not wearing a helmet. 

The accident happened shortly after 6 p.m., while going down the "Headwall" run.

The name of the man has not yet been released because authorities are still trying to contact his next of kin, who live in Romania.
