    The US Forest Service, District 9, Mark Twain National Forest (MTNF), plans to sell timber and burn every cedar stand with herbicides to keep cedars from growing, 18,000 acres of Butler Hollow. USFS plans to start in August 2015, with limited public input, no Environmental Assessment and no plans to do a full independent Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), as requested by NEPA for all federal agencies.

    The official story is on the USFS website under Butler Hollow Project. The real story is on Facebook “Save Butler Hollow and Roaring River.”

    Why would the people we hire to take care of our forest propose this insane action: Budget Cuts and West Coast Wildfires. USFS has no funds for conservation efforts at MTNF: their budget has been spent fighting wildfires.

    Big Timber and The Nature Conservancy see this as a high return, low risk investment opportunity. China and Japan has an insatiable appetite for timber: deforestation has destroyed all they had.

    The US is no longer the world’s leading economy. Like all third world countries, USFS wants to sell the trees to keep their jobs.

    Arkansas needs to stop the BH project. Butler Creek starts in Butler Hollow. Cedar roots on steep karst topography are our natural defense. Burning cedars will devastate NWA with decades of wood smoke, herbicides and flash floods.
