*Three links, FYI

Editor’s note:  Today, a mix of three items reflecting the remarkable variety of opinion across our land regarding forest management and our relationship to public lands. Hold on to your hat, folks!

Rep. Ken Ivory “What the BLM does NOT want you to Know!”

Here is a link to a YouTube video of Rep. Ivory explaining the origins of federal land ownership in the American West.  Linda Yergler was kind enough to forward this item to us.

Forest management: Real, collaborative models should be nurtured

Here’s a link to a Montana publication’s editorial advocating real collaborative efforts (over superficial ones, say?).

More Logging Won’t Stop Wildfires

And, finally, a link to a NEW YORK TIMES op-ed arguing, in effect, that reducing the fuel in a forest does not reduce the burn when it burns.  Nick Smith’s invaluable daily was the source of this link.   (ADDENDUM:  For useful commentary on this NYT op-ed, see the NEW CENTURY OF FOREST PLANNING blog, here.)
