' True all the trees in the burned
area were damaged. Some were
killed where a,; Head fire went

timber. Growth on all the trees
In the burn will be slowed down
for several years, but If fires are
kept out this fall and in following
fire seasons most trees will again
put on profitable growth.
It is impossible to tell the death
rate in a stand until a burn is at
least several months old. Many
scorched trees that appear dead
will come out green again this
spring. They look very bad at the
present but many of these will live.
Most of them will be very weak
and may be subject to insect attack
Hater this summer. Usually insects
will attack scattered weak trees but
Ithis year they may reach epidemic
stages in places, but even then it
