(S. 3091) The National Forest Management Act: The vote is on the Humphrey motion to table and thus kill the Randolph amendment to reform forestry practices in the National Forests. The amendment would have required the Forest Service to consider the option of selective cutting in all National Forests, and to require selective cutting rather than clear-cutting in the eastern mixed hardwood National Forests. Large scale clear-cutting and Òeven-aged managementÓ forestry practices involve stripping an area of all its trees, causing erosion, loss of soil nutrients and stream siltation. Frequently the area is reforested with trees that are all the same species and age, resulting in a tree farm rather than a natural forest. Such areas are very vulnerable to disease and insect infestations and poorly suited for uses other than logging. August 25, 1976. Motion to table agreed 64-25. The correct vote is no.
