This issue of Headwaters' Forest News features stories about flooding, logging, and timber sale profiles.

We took an airplane yesterday, December 12, 1996, flying northwest of Roseburg. During our short 1.5 hour flight, we saw literally hundreds of landslides corning from clearcuts and their roads. We saw about four natural landslides in forested areas. We couldn't see every natural slide from the plane - but I know for sure there were many, many more landslides from clearcuts. The slopes were just dripping with streaks of mud and slides. The draws and valleys were ripped wide open, oozing with the displaced soil and rocks.
