Terann Anderson started this petition to Owner of the Land Mary Filori and

PLEASE STOP the destruction of our Trees (147.93 acres)!!!!

As a resident/homeowner of Seaside, the destruction of the trees near Tillamook Head / Sunset Blvd would be devastating. Not just for us homeowners, but for the beauty of Seaside and the Tourism that we so desperately rely on. Many of us live here for the wildlife and beauty that Seaside provides. If these trees were to be chopped down the deer that inhabit our forest and visit so many of our yards would cease to exist; just as the eagles that nest on the trees south of Sunset Beach would be no more. I understand that harvesting trees brings profit. But why destroy an area of beauty that brings such tourism?! As a small beach town we rely on those from out of town for profit; and removing the beauty of (so many famous photos) Seaside, would be sure to affect so many small businesses.

Especially after Covid, where so many had to shut down... The few that survived should not be brought to their knees by the destruction of our trees.

When you type in Seaside OR on google images, the photos you see are almost always the same perspective. A photo at the end of Broadways Roundabout that shows: our Beach, the Lewis and Clark statue, and our beautiful mountainside of trees. (I have attatched and example photo) This is what Seaside is all about and now, to remove one of our core beauties and attractions... This is awful!

Furthermore, by cutting down these trees, their would be an increase in the devastation we would have if/when a tsunami were to hit. 

We as residents of Seaside beg of you, do not do this to our beloved town and home. 

Please contact Ashley Ashley.m.lertora@oregon.gov with your concerns. Tell her why you don't want this to happen! The devastation that this will cause is massive!  The serenity of the Cove will be destroyed, the animals that inhabit the forest will cease to exist.  Property values will plummet !  The YEARS that it would take to return the forest to its grandeur would NOT be in my life time or my kids life time.  Everyone is “concerned” about Tsunamis, without all the trees the water would travel inland so much further and cause so much more damage.  I moved to the cove for its beauty, forest in one direction and ocean in the other, PLEASE do your part and help stop the greed of a few over the pleasure of the masses.
