Submit Your Comment to the Bureau of Land Management
The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management have announced a pathway for protecting mature and old-growth trees and forests on federal public lands.
After decades of aggressive logging practices, only about 10% of mature and old forests remain in the United States. These forests, found almost exclusively on federal public land (managed by the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), are essential for watershed health, provide critical wildlife habitat, and are an important natural climate solution, absorbing and storing tons of carbon. Despite their importance, mature and old-growth forests are still targeted for logging on nationwide public forests.
The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are currently seeking public input on new national rules the agencies can adopt to manage our public forests better. Submit your comment to urge the agencies to protect mature and old-growth trees and forests on federal public lands.
