Two non-profit groups protesting logging plans at Wendell State Forest

The Department of Conservation and Recreation is planning to cut trees in the Wendell State Forest. 

Two non-profit groups are trying to stop the DCR from logging at Wendell State Forest. 

There are 75-hundred acres of trees, ponds, and hiking trails in Wendell State Forest. 

The DCR wants to clear three locations, including an 88-acre 110-year-old oak forest.

The organization “Save Brook Road Forest” created an online petition asking the state not to log this section of Wendell State Forest. 

The DCR said their logging plan will improve forest productivity and enhance species diversity.
