Yesterday, on June 14, six conservation organizations around Oregon filed a legal challenge against a Trump-era decision that allows the logging of mature trees on over 7 million acres of eastside forests.
This document is the press release submitted by Central Oregon Land Watch describing the suit and summarizing the issues.
We strongly support this effort and are working with these organizations and others to effect change in the preservation of mature trees and the decisions made by managers of our state and federal forests.
We'll continue to report on progress, and will be offering opportunities for public input and education on the Eastside Screens issue. Stay tuned!
