Post-fire Management
Salvage Logging

NRFSN number: 14599
Record updated:

Recent controversy concerning post-fire logging in Oregon is emblematic of the problems of "salvage logging" globally. Although tree regenernation after disturbances in forested areas is important, a narrow view of this issue ignores important ecologial lessons, especially the role of disturbances in diversifying and rejuvenating landscapes.
