(AP) — A Grand Teton National Park research biologist says there is a possibility man has gone too far in, controlling forest fires. Lloyd Loope, who is studying vegetation in the park, said .forest fires are necessary to maintain the ecological balance of a forest. Loope said aspen stands in the park are in danger of extinction because of the decrease in forest fires. Aspen reproduce by sprouts rather than seeds and establish good stands after fires, he said. The fact there have been no fires in the aspen regions for around 90 years has caused them to deteriorate, he said. Loope said an ideal program of controlled forests in Grand Teton would destroy five per cent or about seven square miles of the park each year to eliminate old, dead and diseased trees.
