All Longview Fibre timber-
lands in Washington and Ore-
gon re-opened to the public-
recreational entry on October
1, with rains significantly reduc-
ing forest-fire danger.
In making the announce-
ment, timberlands managers
Bob Roth and Blake Rowe ex-
pressed appreciation for the
public’s cooperation in staying
out of the tree farms during the
hazardous forest-fire period.
Longview Fibre’s timber-
lands will remain open through
the various hunting seasons if
rainfall is sufficient to alleviate
the wildfire threat, which had
closed the tree farms August
10. No fires or camping are al-
lowed on company property.
