This article reports that the U.S. Forest Service's Biscuit Fire salvage logging program has been a failure. Despite accidentally allowing logging in a botanical reserve, the agency has sold just one-fifth of the timber it promised. As a response, two Oregon Republicans plan to prevent similar failures in the future, by speeding up post-fire logging. The bills will help expedite forest recovery in the aftermath of fires, blowdowns, and other catastrophic events.
