The reading passage discusses an interesting topic about the benefit of using salvage logging in the aftermath disasters, like fires and storms, by removing dead trees, and provides extensive information with three main reasons for support. However, the lecture casts doubt about this claim. She thinks the salvage logging practice are perjuditial and produces environmental damage in the long term.
First of all, the reading passage sustains that dead trees avoid the proper grow of plants and trees because its slow decompose; thus, the removing of this trees would help forest areas to recover faster. This point is challenged by the lecture, that argues that the natural process of decomposition of the trees and plants would be much better and in consequence more beneficial for the environment. Moreover, removing dead trees would provoke the lack of important nutrients for the soil.
Secondly, the reading passage states that dead trees creates habitats for insects, like spruce bark beetles that damage the spruce trees. On the contrary, the lecture explains that during millions of years bark beetle lives in this environment without causing damage at all. Equally important, she explains that dead trees are also habitats for many birds and other species.
Finally, the lecture contradicts the reading passage challenging the idea that salvage logging has economic benefits. According to her, the needs of vehicles and infraestructure for this practice is expensive. Additionally, the job that this activity can offer are only temporally and many times hire personal from other regions.
