Lawsuits of last resort

"Thinking Outside the Timber Box" discussed the Center for Biological Diversity's efforts to restore northern Arizona's once-stately ponderosa pine forests (HCN, 7/20/09). Our memo of understanding with Arizona Forest Restoration Products does not waive the Center's right to appeal or litigate Forest Service decisions. It instead promotes high-quality ecological restoration projects to preclude the need for appeals and litigation. Toward that end, the Center is working with the Forest Service, the small-diameter industry and other stakeholders to design strategically placed ecological restoration treatments to conserve native biological diversity and safely re-establish natural fire regimes across Arizona's Mogollon Plateau.
