Defend Oregon's Forests From Destructive Logging

Tell officials to keep important protections in place.

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing to remove nearly all protections from many of eastern Oregon's biggest, oldest trees. Where any protections would remain, they'd be downgraded to voluntary guidelines and be extremely difficult to enforce.

The agency is rushing to finalize this proposal and is already planning logging projects that could target old-growth ponderosa pines, larches and Douglas firs.

Tell the Forest Service that you oppose this new rule and, if anything, Oregon's forests deserve stronger protections.

For 25 years rules known as the Eastside Screens have protected wildlife habitat and old-growth trees in the Deschutes, Fremont-Winema, Malheur, Ochoco, Umatilla and Wallowa-Whitman national forests. These are the safeguards now under attack.

A woodpecker, black bear or any of the other species that need these big trees to survive can't comment on the proposed changes — but you can.

Insist that the Forest Service leave these important protections in place.
