Mattole Watershed Analysis
According to the most recent Mattole Restoration Council newsletter, Pacific Lumber's Watershed Analysis data is incomplete. The analyisis will require more surveys and negotiations and will continue "through the fall". So far, Pacific Lumber has not filed any new logging plans in the Mattole River Watershed but they have carried out herbicide "application" on hundreds of acres of forestland.
Both stumps and standing hardwood trees are killed in order to reduce competition for the commercial softwood seedlings planted by the company. This in effect turns the logged forest into a tree plantation.
