Are you interested in the fate of western
Oregon forests ?

Want to know about the various plans for
logging these forests and how those plans   
relate to potential revenue sources for  
"timber dependent" counties such as
Jackson and Josephine ?   

Pepper Trail's current Conservation Column
provides an extensive analysis of the issues
and can be read in its entirety
here.

The first part of the column also appears in
the April issue of The Chat and will conclude
in the May issue.
