Petition: Moratorium on Logging on Massachusetts State-Owned Lands

We, the undersigned, call for an immediate moratorium on logging on all Massachusetts state-owned lands, including woodlands, parklands, reserves, and watersheds managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, and wildlife management areas managed by the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, excluding the cutting of trees proven to be necessary to protect public safety. This exception does not include the cutting of trees to prevent or control disease, insect infestations, invasive species, fires, or other natural disturbances, which has not been proven to protect public safety.
