Forest Supervisor Brazell of Lochsa Land Exchange infamy is at it again. I encourage those who enjoy recreating in their national forests who missed the USFS meeting last week in Grangeville to submit electronic comments on Brazell’s proposed Forest Plan revision at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For decades the national forests in America have been bound by a 40-acre clearcut size maximum.
When Brazell’s proposed Forest Plan is finalized it will 1) exempt the Clearwater/Nez Perce National Forests from the USFS 40-acre clearcut size limit, 2) hardwire 1,500-acre clearcuts into the plan, and 3) allow clearcuts of any size when he declares a “catastrophic” event has occurred. Brazell will define catastrophic event.
Read about it at page 54 of his proposed plan on-line at:
Our tax dollars are used to pay Brazell’s salary and will be used to pay his pension when he retires. What’s wrong here?
