Clearcut logging areas were examined lot comparison of plantations on burned and unburned units. Logging the timber type of western hemlock, Pacific silver fir, western redcedar, and Sitka spruce in the area examined develops very heavy slash which the Department of Natural Resources wishes to burn. Reasons for burning are reduction of slash hazard, reduction of hemlock mistletoe and securing more uniform stocking of planted trees. Planted stocking is greater on burned areas, but there are fewer natural seedlings than on unburned areas. Average height of trees is greatest on unburned areas. Browsing by elk and deer is heaviest on burned areas.
