The Eastside Forest Coalition, a collective of conservation groups, is urging Regional Forester Jaqueline Buchanan of the Forest Service to take a new approach in working with the public to establish sustainable protections for large, mature, and old-growth trees in Eastern Oregon and Southwest Washington.
