Logging generates woody debris, commonly known as “slash,” in the form of tree tops, limbs and broken pieces. This class will give an overview of the best practices and methods for piling and burning woody material that’s not left for nutrients, firewood or wildlife purposes. Managing large quantities of slash can remove the physical barriers to tree planting and reduce fire hazards on the landscape. The instructors will focus on the Douglas-fir and hemlock forests that grow in northwest Oregon, where dry summers are followed by fall rainstorms and east-wind events, although the practices included may apply across the state.
