Slash piles do not replace natural den features such as logs, snags, rock crevices, and squirrel (Tamiasciurus spp.) middens (see Ruggiero and others 1998), but where logging occurs in pine forests, quantities of slash equal to or greater than those created during operational scale salvage logging may be a practical, important habitat management approach for maintaining ground-level structure and providing prey reservoirs for marten in south-central Oregon (see Sullivan and others 2012; Wilk and Raphael 2017).
