    I get the feeling that the same battle is fought when it comes to harvesting our own oil…

    It is just common sense for us to manage the forests. We do not live in the old natural days. How would they like it if it was their home in the path of the fire.

    Does it look better after a large fire instead of a managed tree protection?

    Are there more animals burned when 1000s of acres are burned?

    Just a thought.

      Common sense seems to be the key phrase. And you bring up a good point on wildlife death following such a massive forest fire. A well managed forest provides more than just recreation for city dwellers.

      I hope the Wallow Fire study becomes required reading material for both the Forestry Service and Congress.
