Tree-Sit News: White Castle Temporary Area Closure

The Roseburg Bureau of Land Management has proposed putting up a road closure for the 15 miles of road surrounding the White Castle Timber Sale. This is directly targeted at making it more difficult for us to access and defend this land.

We have thirty days to comment on this proposed closure and we need support! We might be able to get this closure cancelled, or better yet this screwy timber sale dropped with enough public pressure. Please contact the Roseburg BLM and tell them they have no right to destroy native forests much less restrict access to it's defenders.
