We are very sorry to report that Gualala Redwood Timber (GRT), owned by the Burch family, has decided to resubmit the Timber Harvest Plan called “Dogwood,” the one we have been protesting and fighting for two years.
We knew that winning in court didn’t save the Gualala River floodplain. The judge, in essence, told GRT they had to take into account the cumulative impact of Dogwood and other logging plans along the river.
At first perusal, there are many omissions to the resubmitted THP. We will be in contact with you soon as to the issues so you can make your comments known during the public comment period, which expires November 27, 2017.
Update, November 28, 2017
Cal Fire has received more than 100 letters from the public commenting on the Dogwood logging plan, including these:
In the meantime, Friends of Gualala River and our allies, Forest Unlimited and the DKY Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, will continue to fight this logging plan on behalf of the Gualala River and all of us who love it.
