Old Growth Logging Update

As of this tuesday, SPI had not filed a start of operations on the Windmill logging plan in Davis Creek and Bear River. The planned logging will level 129 acres of rare coastal Old Growth Douglas Fir forest. Much of the area will then be bulldozed and burned or sprayed with herbicides.

Pacific Lumbers proposed Old Growth Redwood logging plan in Bear Creek will go to second review soon. This is one of the last steps before logging plan approval. The plan is called “Pitchfork” #1-06-098. The areas to be logged are full of Marbled Murrelet habitat and located on many steep unstable slopes.

Slash and burn scorched earth; the traditional trademark of the barbarian.

I just found out that pitchfork went to 2nd review last week but was not approved because more field review was needed...according to someone (I doubt CDF or PL).
WQ and DFG reps were there.
