Native Forest Network's Wildfire Primer
The Native Forest Network's 2004 Wildfire Primer explores
the important role of wildfire in our forests and outlines
steps that homeowners and communities should take to prepare
for wildfire. It also examines the relationship between logging
and wildfires, issues surrounding post-fire logging and historic
forest conditions. In 2004 we produced 200,000 copies of this
primer and had them inserted into newspapers in Idaho, Washington,
Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.
Native Forest Network's
Bitterroot "Recovery" Plan Primer
This 2004 publication from the Native Forest Network
examines the on-the-ground realities of the Bitterroot National
Forest’s so-called "Burned Area Recovery Plan."
Originally touted by the Forest Service and logging industry
as a model approach to post-fire restoration and community
protection following the 2000 wildfires, actual implementation
of the "recovery" plan has been plagued by broken
promises and a complete lack of accountability.
A Hard Look at the Biscuit "Fire Recovery Project"
The Forest Service, logging industry and some politicians
are using buzz-words such as forest restoration, fuel reduction
and community protection to justify a Biscuit "recovery"
plan that's actually one of the largest logging projects in
U.S. history. The Native Forest Network producd 45,000 copies
of this primer and inserted it into the Medford Mail-Tribune
on October 1, 2004 and distributed another 5,000 through direct
outreach in the Grants Pass, OR area.
Areas of Idaho and Montana: What We've Lost and What We Stand
This 2004 report from the Native Forest Network and Friends
of the Clearwater looks at key roadless wildlands in the northern
Rockies. If the Roadless Rule is reversed, over nine million
acres of roadless wildlands in the northern Rockies currently
offered some protections by the Roadless Rule would be opened
for logging and roadbuilding.
The Native Forest Network produces this newspaper on behalf
of the National Forest Protection Alliance and its 130 members
groups. If you are looking for information on the national
