Enough is Enough
Yesterday, Big Oil said "cut all highway-side branches off the trees in the Wild & Scenic River highway corridor 32 feet up and 3 feet past the fog line, and the Clearwater National Forest looked the other way. See photo above of the beginnings of a rectangular tunnel being cut in the highway corridor's forest canopy.
Please let the CNF know exactly how you feel about such treatment of the Wild & Scenic corridor. Call or email:

Rick Brazell, Clearwater National Forest Supervisor email@example.com 208-476-4541
Leslie Weldon, Regional Forester firstname.lastname@example.org Missoula
And guess what - after over 3 years of planning, over a week of incident review and recommendations and all the last minute tree trimming and both an Exxon press release and and ITD press release saying the were moving last night from mile 61 to 94 - Exxon once again didn't move!
Enough is enough. These loads are too big for Highway 12. The risks far outweigh the benefits to the residents and businesses of Highway 12.
