Piling and burning reduced fires hazard immediately, but costs twice as much as lopping and scattering, and creates unfavorable soil conditions under piles. Neither lopping and scattering nor piling have enough advantage over pulling tops to defray the cost. THere is little fire hazard after 3 1/2 years, whether slash is treated or left.
