Poor Windy Timber Sale tree sit

On April 1, forest defenders launched a tree sit to stop old growth logging on federal Bureau of Land Management land in Southern Oregon. They are opposing the Poor Windy timber sale, which targets thousands of acres of mature and old growth forest. The timber sale is just one of countless projects the BLM has proposed across the region that will clearcut mature and old growth forests, flying directly in the face of commitments made by the federal administration.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Truck and Talon, two organizers with the tree sit in the Poor Windy timber sale. We also we hear from folks who are up in the trees right now.
