Stop Chopping Down the White Mountain National Forest

Target: Randy Moore, Chief of U.S. Forest Service

Goal: Adopt sustainable logging practices in the White Mountain National Forest.

The White Mountain National Forest, a gem in New Hampshire’s natural crown, is facing the threat of unsustainable logging practices. These practices not only endanger the forest’s health but also risk disrupting the delicate ecological balance. The time for change is now; the forest’s future hangs in the balance.

The forest is not merely a collection of trees; it’s a complex ecosystem that supports a wide array of wildlife. It’s also a source of livelihood for many and a recreational paradise that draws tourists from far and wide. Its well-being is intricately tied to the state’s economic and ecological health.

Sign the petition to insist that the U.S. Forest Service implement sustainable logging practices in the White Mountain National Forest. Essential steps include the adoption of selective logging, reforestation initiatives, and stringent oversight mechanisms.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Randy Moore,

The White Mountain National Forest is at a critical juncture. Unsustainable logging practices are eroding its ecological integrity, threatening wildlife habitats, and jeopardizing the forest’s long-term viability. The data is alarming: loss of native species, soil erosion, and compromised water quality.

We demand immediate, transformative action. A holistic, well-thought-out strategy must be put in place to ensure the forest’s sustainability. This should involve selective logging, reforestation efforts, and rigorous oversight to monitor compliance.

The stakes are sky-high. The White Mountain National Forest is not just a woodland; it’s a vital part of New Hampshire’s ecological fabric and economic prosperity.

We beseech you to act with the urgency this critical situation demands. Implement measures that will not only mitigate current unsustainable practices but also ensure the forest’s long-term health and sustainability.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I live in the Pacific Northwest and timber is big business here. We have seen what poor forest management has done and it’s horrendous. Many of our forests have been decimated and wildlife habitat trashed by careless and thoughtless forestry practices. Once it’s ruined it’s ruined for my life and even the lives of the young people in the family and we may never see these areas recover in some instances. There are great ways to protect and utilize your forests and you need to do that now before you lose it altogether.

  2. I agree with Joanne. The Forrest Service has been educated in this field, correct? There are options which you need to employe. To clean cut an entire forest is showing you need to be reeducated. The White Mountain National Forest is in grave need. Unsustainable logging practices are eroding its ecological integrity, threatening wildlife habitats, loss of native species, soil erosion, and compromised water quality is not acceptable. Immediate, transformative action along with
    a holistic, well-thought-out strategy is required to ensure the forest’s sustainability. Selective logging, reforestation efforts, and rigorous oversight to monitor compliance must be a constant! Implement measures that will not only mitigate current unsustainable practices but also ensure the forest’s long-term health and sustainability.
