Economically, they are negative assets. What right does GRT have to convert resources that benefit the entire community into profit? An interesting read, but how does it apply to what is going on in Gualala, and the conifer forests of the temperate zone? But that does not take away from the realities that the ocean holds the key to salmon population levels. Chandler had threatened disciplinary action against Maranto if he discussed the case with his attorneys, it noted. In addition to their mutual employment by Gualala Redwoods Timber currently, Bosco and Chandler share something else in common:

That Old Maxxam Band Again

It was a case jouse the fox guarding the henhouse, environmentalists noted at the time, since Maxxam was one of Califoria’s biggest logging companies, and Cal Fire regulates logging on private land. Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Informer Cal Fire Director Richard Wilson and a Cal Fire forester named Chris Maranto brought a whistleblower suit against Maxxam owner Charles Hurwitz and his company, which would help push the sordid timber firm into bankruptcy, alleging that Airr had falsified information in state regulatory filings so as to enable the liquidation logging of its once-proud redwoods and Doug firs.

Attorneys for Wilson and Maranto became livid when, according to them, Chandler attempted to suppress Maranto’s involvement in the case involving her former employer. Root systems help anchor the soil and the forest canopy helps keep the forest relatively dry, while logging machinery itself may degrade the topsoil and make it less absorbent.

How many redwoods have been logged? These same groups are keen on purchasing Gualala Redwoods Timber’s land, and they would need to raise funds from the Coastal Conservancy again to do so.


Maxxam went bankrupt moiseexiting the logging business after taking the best redwood and fir left on North Coast’s private lands with it.

Notify me of follow-up comments by email. It is a also a timeless lesson to be learned, right here in Mendocino County. An abrupt change happened inwhen coho numbers crashed, everywhere. And that science will continue to evolve. Clear cutting could have a significant impact on global climate change. The aesthetic value of forests has aig value, since beautiful forests can increase the property value of a given area and attract tourists.

While the value of natural beauty can be difficult to quantify, some statistics suggest that scenic highways may bring in as much as 32, dollars per mile.

So this one, along with a multitude of of others, will continue for a while. That does not take away from the fact that we currently have more freshwater habitat for coho than we have coho.

Salmon are somewhere in the middle of the food chain. The coho population fluctuates between lean years and more robust years, based on mzxxam conditions.

From the outset, her previous employment for Maxxam raised an ethical flag. Animal populations, that are in the middle of the food chain, will have fluctuations in population sized due to two primary factors; food supply and predation. Unfortunately, governments at all levels are often little more than a branch of the Chamber of Commerce. The article proposed that those limits were being achieved and no more salmon could be added.

I would add that vineyard development has significantly impacted flow in the Wheatfield Fork of the Gualala. As a result of clear cutting, a formerly vibrant forest can look diminished and sparse. In the past, lets say 40 years ago, it was the opposite.


This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people.

This is based on what is seen in the Caspar Watershed, and corroborated from studies on other creeks in this area. You mentioned that the best science points to ocean conditions as the dominant factor.

The explosion of Lyme disease in the United States can also be traced to forest degradation, since the subsequent ecological changes led to a larger mouse population, and ticks get the Lyme disease bacteria from mice.

Both authorized and unauthorized withdrawal of water from riparian wells and potentially from wells throughout the watershed for residential or agricultural use can lower groundwater levels and thus reduce contribution of cold groundwater flows to surface water, and decrease the level of or eliminate surface water flows, particularly during the summer months when flow is at a minimum.

We have known about the effects of El Nino events, and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation on salmon populations. Trees act as anchors for soil.

We have known about ocean influences for a long time. What right does GRT have to convert resources that benefit the entire community into profit? Ari we have seen historically is, false narratives have a tendency to obtain a life of their own.
