Author: Minard, A.E.
Subject: Grand Canyon, Tree thinning, Density
Abstract: GRAND CANYON -- Grand Canyon National Park has unveiled a scaled-back version of a forest thinning plan that caused a public outcry in 1999. Early indications are the new plan, which involves cutting small-diameter trees and no wood sales, is meeting approval from even the staunchest opponents of logging on public lands. The project is aimed at safely managing hazardous forest fuels while protecting old trees and other resources.
