Oregon decided to rebuild the forest by salvage logging and replanting. 73 million trees were replanted BY HAND. 3 billion seeds were sown by helicopter.
Today it is a diverse, lush, thriving forest. It's not a sterile timber farm. I've found trilliums, various orchids, a Pacific Giant Salamander, heard spotted owls and pileated woodpeckers--all species which depend on old growth forest characteristics.
We've camped here a lot, explored trails and streams. Remembering the wasteland of only 75 years ago makes this place miraculous.
