Timber! Miller Park bird refuge slated for rehab 7.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Salt Lake City will cut down 30 percent of the trees in Miller Park in order to restore the bird refuge and stream habitat along Red Butte Creek between 1500 and 1700 east.

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. • Golf is starting to feel easy again for Rory McIlroy, who bounced back from a sloppy start Friday in the Honda Classic for a 4-under 66 that gave him his first 36-hole lead on the PGA Tour in 18 months. Tiger Woods is making it look hard. McIlroy recovered from two early bogeys by running off six birdies in a 10-hole stretch. He looked solid from tee-to-green, hit putts with growing confidence and wound up with a one-shot lead over Brendon de Jonge. McIlroy was at 11-u...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Falling trees have far-reaching effects on the Routt National Forest 16.1.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Now that a decade-plus has passed since the Routt National Forest began experiencing its heaviest bark beetle impacts, Routt County residents and visitors can expect to see increased numbers of falling trees. According to Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests Timber Program Manager Mark Westfahl, the expectation has been that most beetle-killed trees would begin falling in large numbers within eight years of succumbing to beetles. This estimation, of course, has a number of variables, including soil type, slope and exposure to wind. On wind-swept slopes, even healthy stands of trees are inherently vulnerable to wind-throw.

For those working in the forest products industry, the scale and timing of falling trees can influence the types of products generated by various markets. While opinions vary on the ...
