    In the Douglas-fir region of Oregon and Washington the protection and use of cut-over forest land are matters of utmost importance. In view of the large acreage of cut-over land and the additions that are being made to it each year, any use of such land that mill bring an immediate financial return, or reduce the fire hazard, without hindering the establishment of a new forest crop should be given careful consideration. Cut-over forest lands in this region have been looked to as a possible source of summer forage, as there is n shortage of summer range east of the Cascade Mountains and as the west-side lands produce an abundance of weed vegetation after timber is removed. It has been suggested that utilization of this forage would reduce the fire hazard and also give timberland holders a financial return, which would help defray protection costs during the seedling and sapling stages of the new timber stand.
