Presents practical solutions to the pervasive problem of deteriorating forest conditions in Western North America. Advocating a new direction in forest management, they explore the promise of 'restoration forestry' - an ecologically based approach that seeks to establish forest structures in which fire can once again serve as a beneficial process rather than as a destructive aberration.
