Some of you may have seen trees marked in blue along trails 13 & 15; this if for a timber management activity that the park is going to do once the ground is frozen.  What is SAMBA’s position on this? I believe SAMBA's best recourse is to focus on the trails and how to protect them. If logging is to occur in a bad section of trail we could use that opportunity to reroute and improve the trail. There is a section in the forestry plan that specifies a buffer around the trails. However there is always a possibility that a drag road would need to cross the trail. SAMBA will attempt to address trail crossings by requesting that the crossing/s be identified to make sure the impact is minimal and are not at key sections of a trail. Honestly I think it would be better to focus on lessening any negative impacts that logging could have on the trail rather than fighting the logging as a whole. Let me know what you think.

Attached below is the Gov. Dick Newsletter that contains and article on the planed timber management.
