PFC November Meeting Agenda
by payetteforestcoalition on 

The Payette National Forest has asked whether the PFC would submit a letter of support for salvage activities in areas burned by the Mesa Fire.  Given the importance and complexity of the topic, we are going to hold off on discussing monitoring in RCAs this month to decide how to address this topic.


Here is the updated agenda for the November 15th PFC meeting.


Thanks,

Paul

LCBC Litigation Update
by payetteforestcoalition on 

On 10/25 the Forest received an amended opinion from the 9th Circuit. There’s no emergency injunction but there is some legal clarification on their previous ruling and they’ve mandated to the district court that the LCBC decision be vacated.

Our attorneys have advised us to begin orderly shutdown and we’re proceeding to work with our contracting officers on the shutdown.  We are looking at how we can address the issues identified by the court for this project.

It’s work that’s vitally important here in the arid West, where mountains have become overgrown with quick-to-burn trees such as ponderosa pine.

But many of the trees that Ford’s Forest Health Company removes are too thin to turn into conventional lumber products, such as boards and planks. So he chips them. And now, six years into his 10-year tree thinning contract with the Forest Service, he has far more chips than he can sell.
