Stop Logging Old-Growth Forests

There aren't many places in the U.S. where you can visit reserves of old-growth forest. And there will be even fewer places soon, thanks to the largest logging operation in modern history, brought to you by the U.S. Forest Service. Old-growth logging has begun in the Biscuit timber sale, located in the Siskiyou National Forest in southern Oregon, even though there are challenges to its legality.

The Forest Service is logging ancient forest stands and roadless areas on almost 20,000 acres of forest. Soon, a district court will rule on the legality of the logging. Please insist that the Forest Service immediately halt the logging of old-growth reserves in the Siskiyou and allow full judicial review.

Petition:

I am outraged that the Forest Service is logging old-growth reserves before a scheduled court case assessing the logging will take place. The Siskiyou Wild Rivers area is a unique, world-class forest and belongs to every U.S. taxpayer. As a taxpayer, I am strongly opposed to the Biscuit logging project, the largest logging operation in modern history. I urge you to immediately halt the logging of old-growth reserves in the Siskiyou National Forest and allow full judicial review. In addition, please protect roadless Siskiyou forests by preventing the auction of logging sales in inventoried roadless wildlands. Thank you for your attention to this correspondence.
