Re: “Into the Woods Today

Reading this article just reminds me what a disgraceful job the Forest Service has done in "managing" the Allegheny National Forest. The only managing they do is allowing the timber and oil interests to completely exploit and destroy what not too long ago was a beautiful National Forest. It should be a national treasure for all Americans throughout the country, not just a reserve for a few greedy individuals to trash. I used to lead several hiking and camping trips up to the Allegehny each year,stopping in Warren to buy supplies for our trip. I quit going in 2002, after seeing what that forest has turned into: nothing more than a patchwork of gravel roads, clearcuts, and numerous oil and gas wells. Its no longer a forest. I beg anyone with an open mind to drive north and see it for themselves. It's just pathetic how a few wealthy coporations have destroyed that place. Sadly, those in the Forest Service care only for those who want to use the forest for timber and oil intrests. Adding a few measly acres for wilderness is just too much ask, God forbid! Not too mention attracting individuals up to that area who could and would spend money to use that forest in a responsible manner, adding a steady stream of money into the local economy.
