Q: received notice nat'l forest which adjoins half my 5 ac will be clearcut. devalue my property. recourse if I can't stop?
if this proposed clearcut of national forest isn't stopped or amended through meetings, is there any action neighbors and I can take? the proposal as is affects half the perimeter of my 5 acres. this is not a selective cut, shelter wood, but a clearcut. I bought the property less than a year ago because it bordered national forest.
A: You could file for a court injunction if the regulatory and administrative process approves the cutting. The court would then review the process used to approve it. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain an attorney who practices in environmental law and litigation against government agencies.
