The Klamath Mountains in Northern California and southwestern Oregon are globally outstanding for their biodiversity. The forest is home to 200 miles of rivers rushing through wilderness and old-growth trees, which provide vital homes to at-risk species like coho salmon, northern spotted owls and Pacific fishers.
The area experienced a fire last summer of the type that's common historically. But instead of allowing the land to naturally recover, the Forest Service is planning to exploit the fires to push an extreme logging plan that calls for clearcutting old-growth trees.
This type of move would fail any Fire Science 101 course, and it surely ought to fail to gain your support for wise use of our public lands.
