State forestry board balks again – Postpones decision on logging buffers for streams

Spawning fish.  They need cool water to survive along with clean, non-sedimented gravel.

Spawning fish. They need cool water to survive along with clean, non-sedimented gravel.

The drama in the northwest between timber and fisheries continues here in Oregon. Timber owners want to maximize timber harvests while those who want to protect fish and the important role they play in the state’s commercial and tourism fishing industries want the timber interests to leave some streamside timber for shade so stream temperatures don’t rise so high that fish die off and their eggs are boiled instead of hatched.

The federal government and conservationists are putting pressure on the Oregon Board of Forestry to mandate adequate shade buffers along small to medium sized creeks. But the forestry board’s reaction this week was to decide not to decide – rather to “restudy” the issue for a couple more months. Then try again.

Here’s more details from The Oregonian. Click here.
