Richards, Karen. 2023. What is lost and what’s to be gained at the H.J. Andrews Forest after the Lookout Fire [audio]. Eugene, Oregon: KLCC. October 16, 2023 at 11:50 AM PDT.
This summer’s Lookout Fire east of Eugene burned more than two-thirds of a research forest near Blue River.
The H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest covers 25 square miles. It’s a mix of old growth, logged and replanted, and previously burned areas and has been used for research for 75 years. The forest is operated as a partnership between the U.S. Forest Service, the Willamette National Forest, and Oregon State University.
