Polallie-Cooper Timber Sale (2005)

This is a view of a snowy mountain framed by some coniferous trees. This picture was taken in the Polallie Cooper Timber Sale which occured in 2005.

5/12/05 We were delighted to learn that the Forest Service has withdrawn the Polallie-Cooper Sales. So this logging project is now canceled! This is a huge victory for Mt. Hood, for those who rely on the Crystal Springs Watershed for drinking water, and all those who enjoy this wild area near Cooper Spur.

Bark’s Concerns

94 acres of fuelbreak along urban interface, all but 6 acres of which are counted under commercial thin acres 4 of the RR acres are part of this the other 2 acres will be hand manipulation. Only 21 of Clan and Kilt are for fire risk.
