The Roads are punched in, trees cut for landings, but logging of the units had not yet begun as of (12/17/04), but appears to have started now. The Upper Timber Sale was auctioned on March 7,2003. The high bidder was Rosboro Lumber for $600,758.50 or 90 ccf weighted average per ccf. This sale has major riparian issues - with only 30 ft buffers recommended on the abundant streams in the unit. One of the proposed temporary roads crosses a stream-bed. This sale contains beautiful native forest surrounded on several sides by the old Boyer Creek thin - a hideous example of what the whole area will look like if the Upper sale proceeds as planned.
