This 60-page publication, with over 80 full-color photographs, tables, and charts, will help forest owners and those who work with them to maximize forest health and minimize problems. It discusses the various benefits of both removing and leaving organic debris where it is generated, as well as the unique properties of Inland Northwest soils as they relate to both fine and coarse woody debris and concerns about fire, bark beetles, and wildlife habitat. Also included are recommendations for how to maintain forest soil productivity and improve wildlife habitat while reducing wildfire and insect-pest hazards.
