Title: Working Paper 13: Treating Slash after Restoration Thinning

Author: * Lowe, K.

Subject: Fuels, Ecological Restoration

Abstract: Restoration thinning of ponderosa pine forests often results in large quantities of slash that can be challenging to remove. As is true of most aspects of forest restoration, there is no one-size-fits-all approach for dealing with slash. In fact, there are several options commonly used in southwestern forests, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. It is important for land managers to understand the long-term implications of slash removal methods on ecosystem processes. This paper presents standard methods for disposing of slash, as well as the ecological and logistical tradeoffs associated with each method.
