Nation's biggest forest-thinning project gets under way

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The smell of wood-burning stoves seems to permeate this gateway to the Grand Canyon and pit stop on the legendary Route 66. In this corner of the state, trees, wood and fire have an ever-evolving relationship. Surrounded by the Coconino National Forest, this northern Arizona town sat at the edge of the 2010 Schultz fire, which burned 15,000 acres. While the Schultz fire visibly marked the landscape, the damage was relatively benign compared with the floods that came a month later.
