Letter: Whiskey Complex fire raises common sense question

Birds reap and people weep?

I read a recent article in The News-Review concerning the salvage logging proposal on last year’s Whiskey Complex fire. Mr. Heiken of the Oregon Wild organization stated that woodpeckers have already reaped benefits from the burn. That is, to say the least, putting the woodpecker’s benefits ahead of everyone else. Mr. Heiken may be a forester, but if so, he should go back to school and take some lessons on common sense.
