    Evaluating the effects of slash burning on regeneration and tree growth is one of the most pressing forest soil problems in the Douglas-fir region. Extensive literature concerning burning and soils is available for other parts of the world, but conclusions are not directly applicable to the Pacific Northwest. Here several studies are under way or planned to determine the effects of slash burning on soil quality, regeneration, and tree growth. This research note covers only the effect of slash burning on soil pH; this information will eventually be combined with findings from related studies.
