Timber Sale Postponed
The Harstine Flats timber sale had been scheduled for auction this year, but has now been canceled by DNR in response to increasing public pressure. Thanks to you, this forest is now safe, but the battle is not over!
This forest is still at risk!
The fight to save this legacy forest is not over.
SIGN the Petition asking DNR to permanently protect this forest!

This fir tree is over five feet in diameter. Large trees like this play a critical ecological role, offering niche habitats for wildlife, and storing large amounts of carbon. Micro-habitat diversity has been demonstrated to increase with increasing tree diameter. Bark structures such as bark pockets, bark pockets with decay, and bowls in the bark can support a diverse array of fungi, lichens, and invertebrates.
