FAFA Comment

This project is a simple project to recover wind damaged timber from 71 acres of land that had been logged in 2012.  The comment period has already passed (July 5 2013 – Aug 5 2013).  Appeals are still accepted until September 19th 2013.  From the comments responses to Oregon Wild, it appears there was 600-1000 acres of wind damaged timber from wind storms during the winter of 2012-2013.  Our question is why is only 7-12 % of the total acreage being addressed?
