Fire Precautions on National Forest Sales in the Douglas Fir Region
Abstract:Compared to a two-line clause in the first large federal timber sale agreement, it now requires several pages to set forth fire precautionary measures in present-day contracts. The author outlines the text of these stipulations. The figures of loss from lumbering fires show a surprisingly small acreage burned from this cause.
