The eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980 triggered a huge landslide causing a powerful, laterally directed blast. A pyroclastic flow consisting of rock fragments, highly charged gas and super heated steam, devastated almost 150,000 acres of private, state and federal forests.

Side Bar:
In 1982 Congress established the 110,000 acre Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Inside the monument no salvage and no tree planting were permitted.
