Video: Bark Appeal for Comments on Jazz Timber Sale

Mt. Hood National Forest has released a Preliminary Assessment (PA) for the Jazz Timber Sale and comments are due by Monday, December 19th.

The Jazz Timber Sale is proposed by the Forest Service to log 2,000 acres in the Collawash Watershed, the most geologically unstable watershed in Mt. Hood. The sale would require 11 miles of roads that have been previously decommissioned to be re-opened to facilitate logging and has prevented still more miles of roads that are damaging water quality and aquatic habitat from being decommissioned while the Jazz Timber Sale has been in the planning stages.

All citizens of the United States may comment on activities which take place on public land
Comments on the Jazz Timber Sale are due by Monday at 5:00 on December 19, 2011.
