To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

To whom it may concern:

Despite the fact that the letter below is written by Earth
Justice, and you probably receive many letters exactly the same,
they do SAY IT BEST! I agree whole heartedly with the commitment
to preserve our forests, nature, wildlife, and feel like the
public is losing ground and voice with our government and policy
makers.

WE CAN NO LONGER GO BLINDLY INTO ENDEAVORS WITHOUT CONSIDERING
THE CONSEQUENCES.

GREED IS NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE AND YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR
BEHAVIOR.

THE TIME FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING - IS NOW!

Letter: I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put
our nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed
Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and
unacceptable plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest
Forest Plan (NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests,
diversity of life, and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

AGAIN, IT IS TIME TO DO THE RIGHT THING. THE RESPONSIBLE THING
FOR OUR PLANET.

JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN - DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY SHOULD. BUSH HAS
PROVEN THIS WITH THE WAR!

PLEASE - IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP!

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

Mr. Shepard this issue has been batted back and forth for many years. We
don't need more studies, we don't need more money for research. What we
need is a plan for a well managed forest where roads are built to protect
from fires and disease. This gives access to the public to enjoy and learn
about the forest itself. The taxes from timber sales used to go the
schools to insure we create a good education for our students. I know this
maybe off the point you may suggest but I think we need some common sense
to take hold.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Dave Andersen

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

I am a member of the forest products industry and we manage our resources
based on sustainability. We recognize impacts on fish and wildlife and
make adjustments to preserve or enhance the habitat in our plans. It is a
shame to think that we are considering taking one of our few renewable
resources and limiting its use. Our children are the future of this
country and if we look at our schools and education systems we should
recognize how good management of timber could create strength.

I would like to see us reveiw the plan to utilize the sustainable yeild
while protecting wildlife habitat. Some of the revenue created from the
harvest could be dedicated to improving habitat in areas that have been
neglected.







In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.
If the forest industries are practicing sustainable logging,
then WHY DO THEY CONTINUE TO DEMAND TO CUT OLD GROWTH TREES?

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Justin Druery

EM-4719 Linda Alessandro <linda@bodywellness.com> Please protect our old-growth forests! 1/8/2008 5:32:06 Dear BLM,
I am very concerned with the direction the BLM is headed with the management of nearly 2.6 million acres of federal forests under the Western Oregon Plan Revisions. The changes the agency is contemplating will unravel the protections of the landmark Northwest Forest Plan, and will lead to water pollution, degraded habitat, and increased conflict and controversy.

BLM lands in western Oregon contain about 1-million acres of our remaining older forests. The WOPR would increase logging of forests over 200 years sevenfold, and threatens some of Oregon's best remaining ancient forests. Two thousand square miles of forest would be put in "Timber Management Areas," where clearcutting is emphasized.

By logging closer to streams the WOPR reduces important protections for clean water and Pacific salmon. High quality drinking water originates on BLM lands for the citizens of Salem, Corvallis, Eugene, and 70 other Oregon communities. Salmon need cool, clean water, but the WOPR would remove stream buffers that shade streams and keep sediment from the water. Please leave the existing protections for riparian areas in place.

Wildlife such as elk and black bear and threatened species like the northern spotted owl and the marbled murrelet rely on BLM forests. The WOPR would reduce protections for wildlife populations and diminish habitat for countless plant and wildlife species. Please choose an alternative that leaves habitat protections for wildlife, especially in existing old-growth forests, in place.

There are many less sensitive and more practical places to generate wood fiber than our last remaining ancient forests, like the millions of acres of young, even-age tree plantations that have grown since previous clearcuts. By focusing on previously logged public forestlands - many of which are now overgrown and in need of thinning - the BLM would provide wood to local mills while actually improving conditions for fish and wildlife and keeping saws out of precious old-growth forests.

Instead, the WOPR proposes to inflame the controversy by increasing old-growth clearcutting for a short-term economic fix. The WOPR puts water quality at risk and would destroy some of Oregon's most special places. We should protect our remaining mature and old-growth forests on public land, not clearcut these natural treasures.

Re: BLM Western Oregon Plan Revisions

Dear BLM,

I am very concerned with the direction the Bush Administration is headed in with the management of nearly 2.6 million acres of federal forests under the Western Oregon Plan Revisions. The changes that the BLM is contemplating will unravel the protections of the landmark Northwest Forest Plan, and may lead to water pollution, degraded habitat, and increased conflict and controversy.

Your current proposal is unacceptable. The agency proposes to increase old-growth logging on public lands in western Oregon by 700%, build 1,000 miles of new logging road in the next decade and clearcut at a 9-1 ratio to thinning. This is a myopic and backwards proposal that depletes our natural resource base for future generations by weakening protections for forests, creeks and salmon. Shockingly, the proposal ignores the role that these forests play in regulating the climate.

Most Americans want federal land managers to embrace thinning second growth forests, safeguard communities from wildfire and protect what remains of our nation's ancient forests. By focusing on previously logged public forestlands - many of which are now overgrown and in need of thinning - they are providing wood to local mills while actually improving conditions for fish and wildlife and keeping saws out of precious old-growth forests.

In contrast, the WOPR proposes to inflame the controversy by increasing old-growth clear-cutting for a short-term economic fix. The WOPR puts water quality at-risk and would destroy some of Oregon's most special places. We should protect our remaining mature and old-growth forests on public land, not clear-cut these natural treasures as the WOPR proposes to do.

It is disappointing that at a time when public consensus for old-growth protection and second-growth thinning has never been stronger, the BLM is proposing to clear-cut forests older than our nation and turn complex ecosystems into flammable tree farms.

Please protect remaining old-growth forests, focus active management of BLM lands in already logged-over areas, and concentrate job opportunities in restoration forestry that would benefit watersheds and generate wood products without multiplying past mistakes.

Sincerely,

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Aaron McCardell

of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and

us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Jacob Pelzer

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

To whom it may concern:

Please do everything you can to save what's left of our forests.
The Western Oregon Plan Revisions threatens too much: the
magnificent forests, diversity of life, the salmon, and clean
water.

You might think there are protections, however most changes in
land and habitat preservation lean to the side of economics,
logging companies, and developers of all kinds.

I would rather live outdoors than cut down trees for housing or
to keep jobs or to help the logging industry.

We humans are only as healthy as our planet which, if you
haven't noticed, is not in too good a shape.

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Sharon Macklin

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

Edward Shepard

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

With the continued crisis in the housing industry and our country nearing
recession it is disappointing that none of the three alternatives
presented in the DEIS meet the requirements of the O&C Act because they do
not manage the land for the dominant use of timber production. Reserving
the majority (52%) of the suitable timberlands for the purpose of a listed
species is contrary to the O&C Act.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Many rural areas are dying at the same time our forests are not healthy
causing catastrophic wildfires. Increasing the timber harvests will go a
long way toward restoring the health of our forests and creating jobs and
lumber for houses as anticipated by President Roosevelt.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Steve Zika

(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

To continue to pursue economic interest exclusively in light of
all scientific data is not only short-sighted, but suggests a
mind-set of a former time when natural resourses seemed to be
unlimited. We now know this to be false, and should act
accordingly.

forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every

cutting of old-growth forests NOW!!!

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

To whom it may concern:

The proposed Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR) is a terrible
idea. We need the protections of the Northwest Forest Protection
Plan (NWFP).

The days of rampant old growth clear-cutting, destructive road
building would fail to provide real stewardship of these
resources.

In Northern California, we have seen the devastating results of
this type of action: whole mountains coming down on
neighborhoods with mountains of MUD, BARE HILLSIDES where
selective logging NEVER left this in the past, loss of jobs
leaving mills closed because of a lack of what was preserved
since the early 1800's with selective logging practices THAT
ACTUALLY WORK!!

No one can possibly deny the effects of GLOBAL WARMING and this
action you are proposing would further this sad ruination of our
environment.

Please DO NOT rewrite the plan to protect our ancient forests,
clean water, and the wildlife that call these areas home.

streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest

Timber harvest has to be based on sustainability while we still

growth is gone. Our natural heritage is more important than
timber industry stock dividends and extravagant CEO salaries.

Edward Shepard

Bureau of Land Management
PO Box 2965
Portland, OR 97208


Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Sam

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest

ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

None of the three alternatives presented in the DEIS meet the requirements
of the O&C Act because they do not manage the land for the dominant use of
timber production. Reserving the majority (52%) of the suitable
timberlands for the purpose of a listed species is contrary to the O&C Act.

Because of the unique nature of the O&C Lands, by law these lands are not
available to be part of a reserve system designed to recover a listed
species. The BLM should consider active management for the protection of
listed and sensitive species and their habitat before adopting passive,
reserve strategies. The alternative selected by the BLM, however, should
be one that will not jeopardize the continued existence of listed species
within the species entire habitat range.

The BLM must develop and analyzes at least one alternative that maximizes
the amount of land in timber production and receipts to local county
governments, and meets its no jeopardy obligation.

Congress and the Administration must ensure that when the Plan is
finalized that the BLM receives adequate funding so that it can be fully
implemented.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

When implemented, the Plan should live up to the full commitment that was
made to local counties.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

All BLM administered land should be managed to minimize the threat of
catastrophic wildfire on these lands and surrounding state and private
lands.

Access should be maintained through BLM administered lands for private
land access, fire suppression, as well as recreational uses, such as
hunting, fishing, boating and sightseeing.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Walt Brewster

I am very concerned about the 2.6 million acres of forest managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Oregon. The BLM is moving forward with the Western Oregon Plan Revision, which will increase logging in Oregon's old-growth forests sevenfold by clearcutting in currently protected old growth forest reserves and sensitive salmon bearing rivers and creeks.

All of my hunting partners and friends are incensed that you

eighteenth century any more. Recreation, intact ecosystems, and
clean water are more valuable than lumber.

just more corporate welfare, that is really a form of socialism

EM-5025 Judith Canepa <judithk5@aol.com> Please protect our old-growth forests! 1/8/2008 8:57:50 Dear BLM,
and dear Governor Kulongski and legislators,

I live in New York, but I visit the west of Oregon frequently. A friend moved there 20 years ago and she convinced me to visit, and I've been returning ever since. The Siskiyous are astonishingly beautiful, and I've told others about it and they, too, are enchanted by old-growth forests. We come there because we don't have this kind of beauty back East; there is actually nothing on earth that I've ever found to equal the treasure that you have in the Great Northwest.

So, after learning about the BLM's Western Oregon Plan Revisions, I am very concerned this plan will degrade my ability to enjoy the public lands in western Oregon. The changes the Bureau of Land Management is proposing will unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan for old-growth forests and wildlife, and will lead to water pollution, degraded habitat, and increased conflict and controversy.

Some of my concerns include:
- I'm disappointed that all special areas (Research Natural Areas and Areas of Critical Environmental Concern) won't be protected from logging under WOPR. These areas contain unique values that many people seek out to enjoy. These areas should not be opened to logging.

- The increased, widespread clearcutting of forests under WOPR could reduce property values and the quality of life of thousands of Oregonians living near BLM lands. Over 1,000 miles of new logging road and 140,000 acres of clearcuts in the first decade alone would scar Oregon's spectacular landscape.

- Clearcutting of old growth forests and proposed "Off Highway Vehicle Emphasis Areas" threaten the peace and quiet for rural residents, visitors, and wildlife. Oregon needs rural residents and tourism to feed our economy - catering to the timber and motorized vehicle industry alone is not a solution.

Oregon's remaining old-growth forests are a treasure -- offering wonderful recreation opportunities, clean water, homes for wildlife, and offsetting global warming. But the WOPR is a step back to the unsustainable days of clear-cutting this amazing resource, endangering wildlife, muddying streams, and fueling public outcry. A better way is to protect our heritage forests and focus on thinning and restoration of the plentiful unhealthy plantations left over from the last logging boom. This approach would safeguard the many values of old-growth forests that make Oregon a place I want to visit, while providing sustainable jobs and other economic benefits for rural communities.

EM-5034 Ron Geason <rwgeason@comcast.net> Western Oregon Plan Revisions 1/8/2008 9:02:04 January 8, 2008
Western Oregon Plan Revisions


Dear Western Oregon Plan Revisions,

As a sportsman in western Oregon, I am deeply concerned with the Bureau of Land
Management's recently released draft version of the Western Oregon Plan Revisions.
The plans outlined in the document would dramatically alter public lands management
in western Oregon to the detriment of fish and wildlife and, by extension, hunting
and fishing.

I frequently visit Bureau of Land Management land in western Oregon, and I'm
worried the BLM's plan would have a significant impact on my ability to hunt and
fish in this region, and, more importantly, my ability to pass down my sporting
heritage to the next generation of hunters and anglers in western Oregon.

For example, reduction of streamside buffers to 25 feet would most certainly
have a negative impact on our trout and salmon fisheries throughout the region.
Timber harvest in close vicinity to fish-bearing or fish-spawning waters will
contribute sediment to the systems, with the potential to smother fish eggs and
spawning gravel. Additionally, removing streamside vegetation will reduce cover
and likely result in temperature increases that could prove fatal to our fisheries.

What's more, plans to construct about 1,000 miles of new roads over the next
decade, and to allow 14,000 acres of clearcut logging annually could have drastic
impacts on the region's struggling, but recovering, fisheries.

Add in the conversion of our low-elevation oak savanna forests to conifer plantations
and the creation of new off-highway-vehicle emphasis areas, and the plan becomes
detrimental to our big-game herds and upland game bird populations.

In short, the Western Oregon Plan Revisions are unacceptable from a hunting
and angling standpoint. Ideally, the BLM would offer a full range of alternatives
when it comes to the plan revisions, with all of those alternatives providing
some measure of fish and wildlife protection.

Finally, off-highway vehicle management should not be addressed at the region-wide
level, but rather by individual BLM districts, and with a generous opportunity
for public comment at the local level.

The challenges facing all of us interested in salmon and steelhead recovery
are significant, especially in light of global warming and the need for new energy
sources. These challenges make efforts to improve watershed health all the more
critical. I urge you to strengthen the Western Oregon Plan Revisions to protect
our remaining watersheds.

Sincerely

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

To whom it may concern:

Have we not learned that our forests are essential to the health
of the planet? That forest policy needs to consider not only
short-term economic benefits, but long-term economic and
environmental trauma. We can have a policy that 1) sustains the
forests and streams, and 2) allows for selective logging.

To whom it may concern:

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.

Edward Shepard

Dear Edward Shepard:

Please accept the following comments on the BLM's Draft Environmental
Impact Statement for the Revision of the Resource Management Plans for
Western Oregon.

Timber sale revenues must generate at least an amount equal to the funding
that was provided to local counties through the Secure Rural Schools and
Community Self-Determination Act on a yearly basis. Not only are these
revenues crucial to the smaller local communities, those of us who are
employed in the timber industry in the metro area rely on these revenues
as well.

In summary, the economic viability of our rural communities and the
overall health of our federal forests are of vital importance to me. I
ask that you give these comments full consideration as you prepare the
final Environmental Impact Statement and select the final management plans
for the Western Oregon BLM Districts.

Sincerely,


Harriet Curtiss

I am an avid hiker, and kayaker. I have lived in Oregon all my
life, and have enjoyed hiking in the few remaining old growth
areas around the state. I have also kayaked in some pristine
rivers, and some rivers that are not in pure water sheds. I
don't want my favorite areas ruined by the destruction that
happens when logging occurs in areas that should be protected.
There aren't many area left in the state that remain untouched.
Please let us keep what we have left (5%, or 8% maybe) so we can
enjoy these areas, and our children also.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient

Re: BLM Western Oregon Plan Revisions

Dear BLM,

I am very concerned with the direction the Bush Administration is headed in with the management of nearly 2.6 million acres of federal forests under the Western Oregon Plan Revisions. The changes that the BLM is contemplating will unravel the protections of the landmark Northwest Forest Plan, and may lead to water pollution, degraded habitat, and increased conflict and controversy.

Your current proposal is unacceptable. The agency proposes to increase old-growth logging on public lands in western Oregon by 700%, build 1,000 miles of new logging road in the next decade and clearcut at a 9-1 ratio to thinning. This is a myopic and backwards proposal that depletes our natural resource base for future generations by weakening protections for forests, creeks and salmon. Shockingly, the proposal ignores the role that these forests play in regulating the climate.

Most Americans want federal land managers to embrace thinning second growth forests, safeguard communities from wildfire and protect what remains of our nation's ancient forests. By focusing on previously logged public forestlands - many of which are now overgrown and in need of thinning - they are providing wood to local mills while actually improving conditions for fish and wildlife and keeping saws out of precious old-growth forests.

In contrast, the WOPR proposes to inflame the controversy by increasing old-growth clear-cutting for a short-term economic fix. The WOPR puts water quality at-risk and would destroy some of Oregon's most special places. We should protect our remaining mature and old-growth forests on public land, not clear-cut these natural treasures as the WOPR proposes to do.

It is disappointing that at a time when public consensus for old-growth protection and second-growth thinning has never been stronger, the BLM is proposing to clear-cut forests older than our nation and turn complex ecosystems into flammable tree farms.

Please protect remaining old-growth forests, focus active management of BLM lands in already logged-over areas, and concentrate job opportunities in restoration forestry that would benefit watersheds and generate wood products without multiplying past mistakes.

Sincerely,

Marcus Lutter

I am writing in opposition to the BLM's attempt to put our
nation's beloved forests at-risk through the proposed Western
Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR). This misguided and unacceptable
plan would unravel the protections of the Northwest Forest Plan
(NWFP) and threaten the magnificent forests, diversity of life,
and clean salmon-rich waters of the region.

Without the NWFP, we could see a return to logging of ancient
forests and the degradation of hundreds of miles of rivers and
streams up and down the Pacific coast. This proposal would take
us backwards to the days of rampant old growth clear-cutting,
destructive road building, and local controversy, and would fail
to provide real stewardship of these resources. I urge you to
reject this and every attempt to undermine science-based
protections for our nation's natural resources.

Clear-cutting over 100,000 acres of old-growth forest every
decade is simply an unsustainable rate of logging that would
destroy these ancient forests. I am also concerned that the
proposal fails to appreciate how important these intact forests
are in helping to slow global warming.

Please do not allow the destruction of our old-growth forest
heritage to be our legacy, and rewrite the plan to protect our
ancient forests, clean water, and the wildlife that call these
areas home.
