Last Minute Phone Call Reverses Old-Growth Logging Approval... For now.


Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) Old Growth logging plan "Shower Head" had been given the OK by Fortuna California Dept. of Forestry (CDF) when a last minute phone call from the main office in Santa Rosa reversed the decision.
SPI proposes to clearcut and bulldoze over 100 acres of Douglas Fir, Cedar and Hardwoods.

"This THP (timber harvest plan) went to 2nd review at CDF today. It was "recommended for approval" by Fortuna CDF but after an 11th hour call from Santa Rosa CDF regarding unresolved herbicide issues, the decision was reversed. Further review of the plan will be necessary and the public comment period will remain open." said an anonymous source on thursday, july 6th.

yey! today this THP went to 2nd review at CDF for the 2nd time and was not approved, again! word has it that there are unresolved issues surrounding rare plants and the amount of wood in the creeks.
Will keep you posted as it approches final approval.
