Ice Storm 1998 and the Forests of the Northeast: A Preliminary Assessment
The ice storm that struck the Northeast in January 1998 has drawn unprecedented attention to the forest resource and motivated many small landowners to take a fresh look at their woodlots. So far, most landowners seem to be following the advice of forestry leaders to take their time. No hardwood pulpwood glut has yet emerged. Experts are warning that damage to residual trees caused by hasty salvage logging may be more serious than some of the damage caused by the ice storm--the cure sometimes being worse than the diseases.
