Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities

Alert: Tell Your Senators It's Time to Restore Our Federal Forests

Alert: Tell the BLM's O&C Draft Resource Management Plans Fall Far Short - tell the BLM and Congress!

We are a grassroots coalition created to support Congressional action on a comprehensive and permanent solution to restore the health of our rural communities and federal forest lands. 

We support a lasting solution that assures active, sustainable forest management, stable revenue sharing for local governments, healthier forests, and more jobs in our rural, forested communities.  

For far too long our elected officials in Washington, DC have avoided finding real solutions to the challenges facing our forests and local communities.  

With your help, we can make a difference to restore the health of our rural communities and forests.  Join our coalition, and urge Congress to pass a solution for our federal forests and rural communities today.

    Just got off the phone with Douglas County Gerry Groff parks manager at 541-464-6387. He said he did indeed sell this 22 acres of Old Growth (in his opinion these were not considered old growth trees) to Herbert Lumber (who does sell the product as Old Growth Trees) for $400,000.00. It is my understanding, the the BLM sells their timber land at over 2 million a hundred acres. He said there were cut so they could make 2 new campgrounds that will generate money for the county. Greater Good For The Greater Number Of People were his exact words. When I asked him about the FSC sustainability issues and for records of the socioeconomic impact assessments (SIA), and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), he hung up. Now, is that anyway to treat the public he wants to generate money from???? PLEASE CALL GERRY AND HELP HIM UNDERSTAND THAT THE GREATER NUMBER OF THOSE GOOD PEOPLE HE WANTS MONEY FROM, WILL NOT BE USING HIS CAMPGROUNDS. Tried to fb the pictures of the clear cut – but healthyforests fb site will not allow that….hmmmm…

    I have 50+ years in the woods and also a district forest fire warden with the n.j. forest fire service something has to be done to thin and haul out just not cut and leave on the forest floor.
