From the text ... 'It is now recognized that indiscriminate slash burning has no place in current forest management. We must improve prescribed burning practice to accomplish at reasonable cost what no other treatment can provide on many sites. The job is to rationally develop and implement a decision-making system to ensure the right sites are treated with the right fire at the right time... This paper briefly describes the state of the art, so far as post-logging clearcut broadcast burning in B.C. is concerned, with emphasis on the coast portion of the Vancouver Forest Region.'
