Clearcutting in the Forests of Oregon

POST #    2304

One of the craziest things I saw when we went out to Oregon was the tremendous amount of clearcutting. There were points where we would drive and there would be swaths and swaths of land that were treeless. The pictures above are only a small example of what we saw. While I understand that logging is part of the economy in the Pacific Northwest, it's still crazy to see all those trees gone.

There were even logging trucks leaving some of the National Parks. I'm curious as to whether the cutting there was to help control forrest fires.
