Uinta National Forest Challenged
WildEarth Guardians recently formally challenged the Smiths Fork timber sale on the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. The timber sale involves logging thousands of acres of important Northern goshawk and lynx habitat on the densely forested north slope of the Uinta Mountains along the Utah-Wyoming border. Along with partner groups we challenged the project because it actively reduces important lynx denning habitat, goshawk post fledgling habitat as well as habitat for sensitive species ranging from the three-toed woodpecker to wolverine. The timber sale also compromises the forests' resiliency to climate change.
