Nedsbar Timber Sale Threatens Applegate Valley
Western Oregon’s 2.6 million acres of BLM forests are some of most unique landscapes in the world, home to rare oak savannas, ancient fir forests, and wild rivers like the Applegate, Rogue and Illinois. These public lands provide a home to wild salmon, steelhead, and spotted owls. Our BLM lands are also an economic engine providing local communities with clean water, recreation and a high quality of life.
But just as Senator Wyden included protection for the most wild forests and rivers in southern Oregon in his O&C bill, the BLM has proposed the 3,400 acre Nedsbar timber salethat would log the proposed Dakubetede Primitive Backcountry Area in the heart of the Applegate Valley.
