Current and Planned Logging in Vermont's Green Mountain National Forest
Increased logging and clear-cutting in the Green Mountain National Forest is occurring and more is planned. These plans will degrade our forests and air quality, destroy scenic beauty and increase carbon emissions. Logging on the Green Mountain National Forest is proposed within eight different inventoried roadless areas, a Congressionally-designated National Recreation Area, and along the boundaries of Congressionally-designated wilderness areas.
