It is generally recognized that logging slash, by increasing the concentration of forest fuels, creates a high forest fire hazard. The most severe fire hazard is found on clearcuts where fuels are usually continuous and exposed to the dessicating effects of prevailing weather conditions. Several hazard reduction methods can be used, including 1) burning, 2) scarifying, 3) piling and 4) windrowing. The need for slash treatment varies from region to region, depending on site, forest cover, method of logging, degree of utilization, and prevailing weather conditions...This report presents the results of three 2-acre prescribed burns in 1-year old white spruce slash. The main objectives of the three burns were (1) to compare fire hazard in lopped and unlopped white spruce logging slash, (2) to reduce the fire hazard, and (3) to assess fire effects in terms of fuel consumption.
