Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR). With
climate change aggressively altering ecosystems, it is imperative that we preserve and protect
every existing forest reserve around the world.

The low mountains of the coast and southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous
forests that offer scenic views and provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the
lower 48 states. These public lands are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the
towering old growth, clean water and abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western
forests provide to its visitors and should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.

In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

clear-cutting and "selective harvesting" can do to the landscape, and I thought it appaling to do
this in pristine forests! SO please do the right thing... and let the old growth forests stay old!

Dear Planners:

I urge you to properly manage the many resources of the western Oregon public forests,i.e.:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds instead of reverting back to
1970s forest management style of old growth logging;

- Review the interrelationships of the water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the monetary value in exchange for old growth logging;

- Protect the quality of life provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values derived for
protecting this important public land. A supplemental DEIS needs to be developed that
evaluates alternatives that 1) protects old growth forests, 2) keeps intact the reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place regarding the Northwest Forest, 3) expand and maximize
recommendations for protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and 4)gives utmost
consideration to wilderness proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

By using restoration management of BLM lands and a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values
of good stewardship our lands will be public lands for generations to come what better legacy
can we offer.

are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests For all


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR). I
am writing to plea for a wholistic approach to forests than that advanced by logging industries.
The need to protect the watersheds of the region, to prevent soil erosion, and the Northwest
fisheries, as well as tourist, recreational and wildlife interests is essential. Do not allow old
growth forests to be lost forever for the short -term interests of a few. A devastated environment
will not be sustainable in the long run for the logging industry. I saw first hand the long term
devastation (2 millenia and more) that irresponsible logging has caused in Greece and Crete.

Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.
BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most

Dear Planners:

The Bureau of Land Management

The title itself would have one believe this is a "bureau", or group of dedicated people, to
manage OUR public lands so no harm befalls it; to protect these lands and their ecosystems from
the ravishes and plunder of private industry.

It appears to me the BLM is doing the opposite.
A more appropriate name would be the BLE... the Bureau of Land Exploitation.

Our wild horses are near extinction, wild buffalo are hazed and killed, wolves are aerial-gunned;
the ranchers come first as well as the hunters. Now, we can include logging and oil rigs.

BLM = corruption.

As a home owner on the southern Oregon coast I am familiar with the spectacular forests and the
low mountains of the coast which are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer
scenic views and provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states.
These public lands are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth,
clean water and abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

Subject: Protect Oregon's old growth forests!


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

And, perhaps most importantly, find a way to work with the local communities so that their costs

an ecocide but a communicide!

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

2. Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

3. Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship. Thank you for the

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most

you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Subject: Protect Oregon's Forests


Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Sincerely,

The low mountains of the coast and southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous
forests that offer scenic views and provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the

I ask that the BLM consider the true value of this land and protect water quality, recreation,
wildlife and wilderness rather than the money to be gained by logging these old growth forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect how most Oregonians and
Americans feel about protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that you
develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that protects

BLM has the opportunity to be a good neighbor to the citizens of Oregon state and protect the
valuable resources that exist in western Oregon's public forests. However, WOPR does not
demonstrate BLM's responsibility as a steward of its lands, but rather a degeneration of
management that ignores the values of stewardship and land preservation. To properly manage
the many resources of the western Oregon public forests, BLM should:

- Preserve the rare, remaining old growth and protect key watersheds to help restore the
endangered Pacific salmon instead of reverting back to 1970s forest management style of old
growth logging;

- Look at all of the values of our land: water quality, recreation, timber, wildlife and wilderness
rather than just the value of currency in exchange for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these special places provide us and the economic
advantage provided by living close to and enjoying these public forests.

BLM's alternatives, as presented in the WOPR DEIS, do not reflect the values held by most
Oregonians and Americans for protecting what is special about our public lands. I request that
you develop a supplemental DEIS that seriously considers and evaluates an alternative that
protects all remaining old growth forests and keeps the late successional reserves and aquatic
protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.
In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for
protecting areas for their wilderness qualities and give utmost consideration to wilderness
proposals, such as the Wild Rogue proposal submitted to BLM.

Please protect remaining old growth forests, focus on restoration management of BLM lands and
develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects the values of good stewardship.

Dear Planners:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR).
Home to some of the most spectacular forests in the country, the low mountains of the coast and
southwest Oregon are covered by rain-drenched coniferous forests that offer scenic views and
provide some of the most productive salmon habitat in the lower 48 states. These public lands
are enjoyed by the young and old alike who seek out the towering old growth, clean water and
abundant recreational opportunities that Oregon's western forests provide to its visitors and
should remain protected under the Northwest Forest Plan.
