Redwood Region. This area was burned in the great 1936 fire while it was still in virgin forest. The "white woods" were killed. The redwoods remained alive. The greater light invited reproduction which is heavy and up to 12-15' high. In 1951 the area was cut selectively and yarded with tractors. Orders were given to protect the reproduction. Successfully done. Hammond's M-Line. 9/3/52 E.F
