Title: Logging slash flammability after five years

Author: Fahnestock, George R.; Dieterich, John H.;

Date: 1962

Source: Res. Pap. 70 [Pre 1963]. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 15 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: This paper reports the final phase of research that has determined the flammability of slash for nine species of northern Rocky Mountain conifers at three ages. Visual characteristics, rate of fire spread, and fire intensity for 5-year-old slash were studied by essentially the same methods as had been used previously on freshly cut and 1-year-old material. Final experimental burning was done in July and August 1960 on a specially prepared site in the Priest River Experimental Forest in northern Idaho.

Keywords: logging slash, flammability, fire
