Description: Disposal of logging slash is one of the forest manager's biggest problems. If slash is not disposed of, a serious fire hazard may result, and regeneration may be prevented because of an inadequate seedbed or resistance to planting. Foresters can dispose of slash by burning or by generally more expensive mechanical methods such as chipping. Over much of the West, however, burning is risky during the hot, dry summer months, and slash may be too wet to burn during the fall or winter. A water-repellent coating sprayed on might help keep the slash dry until conditions are safe for burning.
