KBOO News Story on Jazz Timber Sale Protest at Mt. Hood Forest Headquarters

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014
In July, 2013, the forest watchdog group Bark filed a lawsuit challenging the Forest Service on the Jazz Timber Sale in the Clackamas Ranger District.
Bark’s lawsuit alleges that the forest Service did not comply with the National Environmental Policy Act and the national Forest Management Act in its decision to log this geologically unstable watershed.
Despite active litigation, the Forest Service proceeded with entering into contracts with the Canadian timber giant Interfor to log parts of the sale.
Just last month, Federal District Judge Marco Hernandez dismissed Bark’s factual and legal challenges, deferring to the Forest Service’s claims that the sale is legal and allowing logging to continue. 5:30 minutes (5.03 MB)
