In 1971 Oregon set standards for 'good forestry' practice. The state legislature passed the Oregon Forest Practices Act, an act that specified limits and guidelines for timber harvesting. Covered were that clearcuts, such as this one, must be replanted with two years of harvest, snags and some logs must be left for wildlife, and brush and shrubs must be left by streams. Thus, when we came across this older clearcut we were amazed by the reality of clearcutting verses the statements claimed by the industry. We found eroding soil, enormous piles of debris, mud, and polluted soil. It was so ugly that it cried out to be photographed as a border of a natural forest and clearcut as well as a border between nature and human destruction of an environment.
