We only have 2 months to submit our recommendations. And the plans to start logging as early as Jan. 1, '20. I've submitted that I want tree cutting limited to no trees being cut that are greater than 3 feet in diameter at chest height from now on. I would like them/Forest Manager, by saying so here on Tideline, please. Thank you for posting, Ione!
