Title: The trend of forest fire research in northern Idaho
Author: Gisborne, H. T.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Readers or the Idaho Forester do not need to be told why it is necessary to study forest fires in Northern Idaho. They have seen the fires sweep though virgin stands or merchantable timber and through beautiful young stands of valuable reproduction, greatly reducing the value of the merchantable timber and trees and often completely destroying the young stands which soon would have been merchantable. The readers know that there are different causes of these fires, that some fire seasons are much worse than others, that some fires behave altogether differently from others, and that the cost of suppression, the actual cash value destroyed, and the ultimate loss to the State of Idaho vary as these factors vary. It may be of interest to explain how the United States Forest Service, especially the Branch of Research, is studying these variable conditions, and how the information obtained may be used to reduce the present high expense and loss caused by forest fires.
