The Elliot Free State, which is still being defended as of this post, allowed forest defenders to visit the sites already logged by Roseburg Forest Products. Defenders documented these sites, showing the undeniable presence of a native forest ecosystem and the destruction of it due to clearcut logging practices.
We documented disturbance of riparian areas critical for coho salmon spawning and the loss of large trees suitable for Spotted Owl and Marble Murlett nesting. The Oregon Department Forestry (ODF) refuses to survey for these endangered species in the areas they are logging. See for yourself the destruction caused by clearcutting in the Elliot State Forests.
