We demand an end to clear cutting in Oregon OHV and other recreational areas that millions of Oregonians as well as tourists and other visitors use annually. Clear cutting is a lazy way to manage forestry and only exists for maximum profit at the expense of the enjoyment of all who seek to enjoy and use the OHV and recreational hiking and fishing areas Oregon has to offer. Oregonians have spent their entire lives experiencing the beauty of the forests in publicly owned state land, building memories and enjoying what nature has to offer, then a logging company comes in and turns it into a horrible eyesore in the blink of an eye. It can be disheartening and depressing to see your favorite forest chopped down. Clear cutting these recreational lands removes any ability for anyone to derive enjoyment from the stripped land for many years to come and tarnishes memories made over a lifetime.

Other states practice more sustainable forestry including selective harvesting and the use of firebreaks for providing protection from wildfires. Many of these logging operations on public land are done without our approval and don't even benefit Oregonians directly. Typically these funds earned from clear cut logging public land are used without voter discretion and misappropriated or put into various slush funds. As Oregonians we pay taxes on these public lands and we demand to have a say in how they are managed and operated. We want clear cut logging operations to cease and desist immediately to preserve to future of recreation for Oregonians and all other visitors for years to come. The time has come to implement low impact selective logging and forestry practices that will allow Oregonians to preserve their favorite recreational areas.
