Clackamas

The Upper Clackamas Thin has been a collaborative project with the Clackamas Stewardship Partners. The CSP is a group of stakeholders, including the Forest Service and Bark, who act as a collaborative group to try and find common ground around logging, restoration and other stewardship opportunities. Although, the CSP did propose some thinning recommendations, the Forest Service has added new road construction, as well as reopening previously decommissioned roads for access into the logging units. Bark does not support new road building in Mt. Hood National Forest.
