I would like to thank the Boise Forest Coalition for their input through the process and I believe that it led us to a final project design that will improve fire risk and stand conditions while minimizing the impacts from the activities to the resources in the area. </p><p class="plain"><br></p><p class="plain">This project will improve forest health while also creating jobs and wood products for the region. While we didn’t all come to perfect agreement on the particulars of this project, I believe that we struck a good balance and I greatly appreciate the candid discussion from the group while we worked through the process. Thanks again for all your effort and attention to this project and I look forward to continuing work with the BFC on future projects.<u></u><u></u></p><p class="plain"><u></u> <u></u></p><p class="plain">-Jake Strohmeyer</p> boiseforestcoalition 2018-10-19T11:48:50-07:00 French Hazard Project Decision
