Let people cut it up for fire wood! So many couldn't get wood because of the fire danger and cutting was closed. I for one do not have enough wood to last the winter.

I agree with Leslie. Donate the wood to people who may not be able to afford to buy it.

Not sell but donate to those who need to heat with wood.

Let private firewood companies come there to clean it up, then sell it.

Leaving it that provides more fuel for future fires. The profits from selling the lumber will help the industry and provide jobs and funds for reforestation projects or upgrades to the rec areas.

What's the point of leaving a bunch of dead trees along the road that ODOT (or whom ever) killed??? I get trees are natural but their demise was not.

Duh do you really have to ask why we should not waste wood.

I would hate to see these trees go to waste and the forest service could put the money to good use

I would not sell the lumber. what I would like to see is the lumber milled into post and other timbers to use on our roads and hwys. This lumber could be used for guardrails and signage along Oregon.

Do not leave them there, but do not cut them down for selling, either. They have been sprayed with herbicide, so if someone were to burn them as firewood, it would be a risk to health.

Sell it off to highest bidder. Use funds to restore other forest areas. This also gets it all cleaned up to help in avoiding more forest fires.

It's always busy, but I usually need help later in the evening. 10 pm until 2 am sucks though.

This ecosystem is as dependent on fire as it is on rain.
