Title: Going to extremes?

Author: Ghioto, G.

Subject: Fort Valley Experiment Station, Tree thinning

Abstract: As wildfires burned million of acres across the West this summer, Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt and Arizona congressmen touted the so-called "Flagstaff plan" and its program of thinning and prescribed burns as the solution to treat dense, fire-prone forests. Back in Flagstaff, the national focus on local restoration efforts has caused a public relation problem for the Forest Service and the Grand Canyon Forests Partnership and their stalled Fort Valley Ecosystem Restoration Project.
