It's greatly dissapointing that Oregonians are engaged in this conversation again; short term economic gain versus long term gain in forest health and the multiple benefits that result from healthy forest ecosystems;watershed and habitat health.
We can't cut our way out of ecomomic downturns by increasing timber production in our state forests. Counties need to devise other means for sustaining thier economies, and not only rely on high timber yields as the source of revenue. Reversing the current management plan to put timber production first, at the expense of our state forest's social and environmental values is shortsighted.
