Forest Service To Attack Pine Beetle Epidemic

Posted by nationalforestlawblog on September 13, 2010 at 10:50 PM

The Casper Tribune has this article from the AP on the Forest Service's plan to attack the pine beetle Wyoming and Colorado.  The Forest Service will be spending some $30 million to fell infested trees and for other work in Colorado's White River, Medicine Bow-Routt, Arapahoe and Roosevelt and White River national forests.  Now that these projects are getting under way this fall, will environmental groups oppose the popular projects in the name of forest health or wildlife habitat or lack of EA or EIS analysis?  While it would seem foolish, I would be surprised if they don't.
