Ineffective and Destructive Bulldozing in Wilderness Fires

I am glad there are firefighters out there protecting people and their dwellings. That's what I think should be focused on, not fires that are burning in wilderness areas.



This picture shows the "Siskyous Complex" fire crossing the GO road.

The below email was forwarded to me today.

Key sentences:

"the logging is shaking houses on the property I'm living on many miles away because they are falling so much old growth"

"Notice the fire immediately went over the line..."

Hi there,

Here is the incident report from the other day that they hooked a Rock Creek dozer line into the GO road. I believe this had to go through the Dillon Creek Roadless area. Rock creek is the most intact creek around and the logging is shaking houses on the property I'm living on many miles away because they are falling so much old growth where no one lives. Notice the fire immediately went over the line, same as at the Wooly Creek fire which I have photos of if anyone wants them.

They may also want to put a dozer line into the Elk Valley area near Dillon Creek. It is famous for being the reason for the GO road throw down in the 80's and the Salvage Rides throw down of the 90's.

Any one who thinks they can put the pressure on the Six Rivers and Klamath NF, or local representatives should. This is roadless, wilderness, and sacred areas in one of the wildest places in the lower 48. It is also the area where the craziest logging showdowns in the last twenty-five years have happened for the Klamath River area. It is also threatening zero houses yet they are building dozer lines and roads like crazy.

Thanks,
Regina
