Shutdown On National Forest Logging Lifted

By Jim McCoy Thu 17th October NewsloggingUS Forest Service
The U.S. Forest Service is lifting a logging ban on national forests imposed as part of the government shutdown. The agency filed documents in U.S. District Court in Medford on Thursday saying that contract officers will start notifying timber purchasers that they can resume work. The documents were part of a motion filed by the Forest Service to dismiss a lawsuit from the timber industry over the logging shutdown. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which sells timber in Western Oregon, lifted its logging ban, too. A hearing on the lawsuit was scheduled Thursday.
