Practices and Problems in the Disposal of Brush Resulting from Thinnings in Ponderosa Pine in the Black Hills National Forest
Abstract:This paper outlines what its author believes to be a practical compromise between the prohibitively expensive ideal of complete brush disposal, and the other impossible extreme of no brush disposal at all on the 50,000 acres of second-growth pine in the Black Hills, which will have been thinned by the E.C.W. and N.I.R.A. before the spring of 1934, and which will present to the national forest officers a new problem in fire prevention.
