Fighting a Logging “Epidemic” in Vermont’s Roadless Forests

The US Forest Service is exploiting a loophole in the Roadless Rule to back misguided management plans, say activists.

Will wrote in Earth Island Journal about protecting the Green Mountain National Forest against logging and about restoring wild, public lands in New England.

“There’s really kind of an epidemic of roadless logging in both New Hampshire and Vermont, in the White Mountain and Green Mountain National Forests,” says Zack Porter of Standing Trees. “Many thousands of acres at this point have been targeted. And many miles of roads have been punched into some of the wildest landscapes that we have in New England.”

Chocolate pudding pie

Happy Valentine’s day, sweethearts. Hope you are staying warm. Does anyone else have this faint, embedded feeling – from elementary school days, or something – that with February comes at least the beginning of spring? I guess in a way it does. And I’m looking forward to spring – I’m starting to, slowly. But I am also trying to relish winter – we are really enjoying the snow. And even though winter days can be short and fast and dark, I know that the hustling, bustling longer days and strong sun of summer bring their own pressure and challenges. 

For this sweet, snowy holiday, I made a chocolate pudding pie! With an oreo cookie crust and fresh whipped cream! So good.
