Federal Forest Future
This March 18, 2011 picture shows a dense forest of Douglas fir, madrone and oak on a steep hillside on federal forest land outside Ruch, Ore. Forestry professors Norm Johnson of Oregon State University and Jerry Franklin of the University of Washington are laying out a pilot project on this land to demonstrate logging can restore healthy forests, reduce the threat of wildfire and improve fish and wildlife habitat.
