Subject: yeah,it's a form letter, but it's right


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:

As the New Year begins I once again request that new attitudes towards our natural resources be
uppermost in the minds of legislators and groups responsible for our wonderful country. Please

lands. Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision

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:

I wish to comment on the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR). One of my biggest concerns
is the decimation of the historic salmon runs and the fishermen that once depended on them. The
top priority of the BLM should be the restoration of these salmon runs and the protection of the
watersheds on which they and the citizens of the Northwest depend for clean water supplies. In
the past BLM got the cut out to the detriment of the salmon runs, clean water and wildlife
habitat. There is just a small amount of old growth forest left which should not be cut.

 This area is 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.

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:

- Of key importance is to preserve the rare, remaining old growth forests 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: longterm preservation of water quality, recreation, timber,
wildlife and wilderness rather than just the shortterm sale for old growth logging;

- Manage our land to protect the quality of life these that 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

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,

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,

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.

- 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

Does the BLM remember these are PUBLIC LANDS, owned by WE, THE PEOPLE? These

protections currently in place with the Northwest Forest Plan intact.

In addition, this supplemental alternative should expand and maximize recommendations for

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

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 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 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.

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.

- 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

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,

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 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.

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.

- 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.

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,

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.

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.

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

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

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

PLEASE PROTECT THE REMAINING old growth forests, FOCUS on RESTORATION
management instead of devestation of the lands and develop a supplemental DEIS that reflects

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

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 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.

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.

- 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.

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

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,
