Fed Lawsuit Filed Over White Mountains Logging Projects

Frankenstein Cliff in the White Mountains National Forest.

The Vermont Law & Graduate School’s Environmental Advocacy Clinic is suing the U.S, Forest Service over 2 pending logging projects in the White Mountains National Forest. The lawsuit claims that the Forest Service has violated federal law by failing to adequately investigate the projects’ potential for environmental impacts and explore less harmful alternatives, as required by law.

Two projects in question would open up 3,000 acres of the WMNF to commercial logging and construct more than 11 miles of permanent roads in Piermont and Gorham, NH.
