The last month has been a real lesson in not letting yourself get too comfortable. For the past couple of months, the Forest Service has been relatively quiet, on the timber sale front anyway. [...] On March 2, however, we were greatly surprised when the Forest Plan Amendment and 15 timber sale Supplemental Environmental Assessments all appeared in our mailbox. Five more Supplemental EA's and the long-awaited new sensitive species list arrived shortly thereafter. It is clear that this barrage from the Forest Service is an attempt to overwhelm the public with projects to comment on.
