The Association of O&C Counties’ issues and uncertainties regarding the BLM’s proposed resource management plan.
The following represents AFRC’s comments to the Senate ENR on the Wildfire Budgeting, Response, and Forest Management Act of 2016.
AFRC and its allies recently filed an amicus brief in support of the Solicitor General’s petition for certiorari asking the US Supreme Court to decide whether Forests Plans are ongoing actions subject to a continuous requirement to initiate ESA consultation.
After contentious litigation, an Idaho judge has denied a request for a temporary restraining order of the Lost-Creek-Boulder Creek landscape restoration project on the Payette National Forest. The project aims to restore approximately 80,000 acres in the Forest using varied silvicultural treatments, including 20,000 acres of commercial timber harvest.
A new study from the journal of Forest and Ecology Management suggests an evidenced correlation between timber harvesting in recently burned forest stands and a reduction of woody fuel during subsequent decades. This decrease in fuel loading can lessen the impact and frequency of catastrophic wildfires for up to 40 years in some cases.
On Saturday, June 25th, 2016, AFRC and Habitat for Humanity will celebrate the groundbreaking of a brand new home construction project, made possible by contributions from AFRC and its members in the Springfield/Eugene area.
