MountainTrue is Objecting to the Revised Forest Plan for the Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests. These are our Reasons.
The U.S. Forest Service released its Revised Forest Plan in late January. Since then, MountainTrue’s Public Lands Field Biologist, Josh Kelly, and Western Regional Director, Callie Moore, have been hard at work crafting our organizational response to the 2000+ paged plan. While there are some bright spots in the Forest Service’s Revised Plan, they are far outweighed by its shortcomings, which can be characterized by the agency’s arbitrary decision-making and prioritization of timber harvest at the expense of old-growth forests, Natural Heritage Areas, and water quality.
