    Description

    Timber salvage on the Indian Burn was carried out without compromising watershed values. In some cases watershed condition was actually improved by providing ground cover, by removing trees that were a source of erosive water droplets, and by breaking up hydrophobic soil layers. Negative impacts of timber salvage on watersheds were minimized by using an interdisciplinary team that identified issues, concerns, and opportunities early, defined specific objectives for each resource, had access to accurate site information, and developed management prescriptions in the context of whole watersheds and fire management areas.
