Ketchikan mill is awarded Orion North timber - Juneau Empire
The USA forest service has been doing this for decades.
Is this particular cutting bad or something?
If so, why is it bad?
Just reporting. Didn't make an opinion one way or the other.
I would have to know the forest before I would venture a judgement, one way or the other. Clear cutting has some huge drawbacks, especially if there are streams with spawning beds in the area. However, there are cases where clear cutting is the only rational way to go, and, in some case, good for the health of the forest.
