I have bow hunted on the Colorado border of Utah and know exactly how an overpopulated forest looks like. While the spruce and pines don't have the deadfall problems as much as aspens (for those that haven't walked the walk, try to stroll thru an aspen grove !!), The pine needles on the ground more than make up for tender for fire and the very nature of pine trees makes them more than a normal fire hazard. It takes a real woodsman to navigate in a pine forest like these. I DON'T mean using a GPS, either !! Harvesting these useful trees is a tool for the forest service if they will use it !! Also, it takes a responsible person to make a safe camp fire when camping out there. back in the
