Letter: Remove deadfall

To the Editor:

When is the Forest Service going to get busy and remove the deadwood from the forests they manage?

Dead trees left standing in the forest are fuel waiting for a fire. Fallen juniper does the same thing. Why are they falling the juniper? It is shade for birds and cover for deer to hide in. Yes there is too much juniper but clear cutting them and leaving them on the ground is not the answer either.
