From the text...'A fire-control problem of major proportions in B.C., as in many other areas, results from hazardous accumulations of logging slash. The basic question is whether it is wiser to give cut-over areas added protection and tolerate the increased hazards introduced by the slash until, through time, the hazard is diminished to a more acceptable level, or to abate the hazard at the outset by burning the slash under weather and fuel conditions conducive to easy control. There are obvious risks either way.'
