Every year the Forest Service plans thousands of acres of timber sales and invites the highest bidder to log Mt. Hood National Forest. Clearcuts in Mt. Hood National Forest visible as snowy checkerboard

Bark monitors all timber sales proposed on Mt. Hood and uses the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to engage in the decision-making process for our public forests. NEPA requires the Forest Service to analyze the environmental impacts of proposed timber sales and provide information to the public to comment on the proposal.

You can also visit our office to find additional information in our resource library. Or better yet, join us on a 2nd Sunday Bark-About Hike to see proposed timber sales, come to a groundtruthing training to learn how to monitor proposed actions in Mt. Hood National Forest, or participate in our Rad·i·cle Program to learn how you can influence decisions about logging Mt. Hood!
