DescriptionSlash left from cutting operations in forest stands may have several important economic effects. It may kill established reproduction or provide unfavorable conditions for the establishment of new seedlings, thus preventing the restocking of the area with a desirable crop of timber. Slash may also create a serious fire hazard, providing fuel for intense fires that are difficult to control. Moreover, slash may impede fire fighting and double or triple the cost of suppression.
