DescriptionThe number of potential burning days and the potential burn acreage under smoke control restrictions were estimated for hypothetical forest areas on both sides of a pollution prone area, the Willamette Valley in western Oregon. On the basis of a sample of 2 dry years, the greatest impact on burning operations applied to low elevation forests west of the Valley. The study indicates that considerable burning can be accomplished under the assumed air quality restrictions. In some areas, however, it may be necessary to consider other alternatives for coping with logging residue.
