Douglas County Sheriff's deputies removed abandoned tree platforms, climbing ropes and camping supplies that belonged to anti-logging activists protesting the White Castle timber sale. Spokesman Dwes Hutson told the Roseburg News-Review (http://is.gd/2Hm9sP) that deputies patrolling the site east of Myrtle Creek noticed it had been abandoned for at least several weeks. The forest cleanup followed a 10-month tree-sit organized by Cascadia Forest Defenders protesting the 187-acre timber sale. Cascadia Forest Defenders member Ben Jones told the newspaper that tree-sitters left after two other groups sued to stop the timber harvest. He says the group operates on a tight budget and will talk to the sheriff's office about getting its stuff back.
