Title: Years of overlogging, fire suppression hit
Author: Ghioto, G.
Subject: Ecological Restoration
Abstract: U.S. Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt today praised research and efforts by Northern Arizona University and the Grand Canyon Forests Partnership to restore overgrown, unhealthy ponderosa pine forests in Arizona by thinning and reintroducing fire cycles. Babbitt said the scientific foundation for restoration has been laid by NAU foresters and researchers and that the time to begin "scaling up" projects has come, despite criticism from some environmentalists who oppose any logging on public and private lands.
