DescriptionThe decision to include the fire process as part of a restoration treatment for a particular forest site is most logically made in conjunction with the decision for a silvicultural treatment. In other words, forest managers do not typically wait to visually or quantitatively evaluate the post harvest site before deciding whether or not to apply fire. Each phase of the restoration effort can effectively relieve only certain aspects of forest problems. So, silviculture and fire are complementary.
