Oregonians want clean water, clean air, and healthy rivers. People move here for it.
But is Oregon as green as we think?
Oregon is behind California, Washington and Idaho in protecting communities from unhealthy logging practices. Oregon allows rampant aerial spraying of toxic herbicides, logging right up to and through most streams, and rampant clearcutting even on steep slopes with unstable soils that slide into streams.
It's been more than 20 years since Oregon updated logging rules on private forests.
Oregon needs comprehensive reform that promotes responsible logging on private forestlands. Oregonians need their leaders to follow the science and update rules for: pesticide spray, logging near streams, and logging on steep slopes.
We need Governor Kate Brown to be a leader on this issue, and to work with the legislature and the Board of Forestry to comprehensively reform the Oregon Forest Practices Act.
