Hoping for huckleberry progress from Jesse

Letter to the Editor


The column by Jesse Utz on huckleberries touched on a subject of special interest to me.

Hopefully, the Colville fire areas will bounce back at a quicker pace than Jesse projects in regard to the huckleberries. The intense heat in these cases is obviously the problem. If the underground rooting systems were destroyed, the slow recovery will possibly result.

Fire is the best friend of the huckleberry, but the massive, hot fires change the equation. Hopefully, Jesse will provide follow-up columns in the coming years on the recovery.

Thank you, Jesse, for the first round of information.
