Decay of Slash on Clear-Cut Areas in the Douglas Fir Region
Abstract:One of the principal obstacles to permanent forestry on most areas in western Oregon and Washington is the high fire hazard characteristic of slashings in this region. This paper describes the decay of logging debris as observed on a number of representative slashings in the Douglas fir and spruce-hemlock types, and briefly discusses its effect on fire hazard and on the occurrence of tree diseases.
