With the discussion about logging in the Hiawatha NF you should know of
the article in the latest Newsweek -"Saving the Tall Timber" - which
portrays the Forest Service director, Mike Dombeck, as changing the
traditional alliance between the FS and the timber industry. 
Specifically, the Boise National Forest is being managed differently and
he "wants to reward district chiefs for restoring forest, not just
cutting them down."

Sounds encouraging.
