    Hollow trees are used by all kinds of critters.

    They could at least cut the trees down and donate all the firewood to taxpayers only but firewood smoke is harmful to the environment

    Ever since that hollow tree fell on the kid at Erbie they have been doing this.

    Critical habitat for almost everything that lives in the woods. Pathetic, just what I would expect from them. They should be arrested for destroying habitat.
    They want to make room for trees they can sell.

    Sorry to hear about a hollow tree falling on anyone....but how often does something like this really happen? What happens if someone falls in the National Forest on some slippery rocks, & gets critically injured? Do they go in & remove all the slippery rocks? :confused:

    I saw some USFWS employees over at the ONF the other day power washing moss off of some slab rocks. I wondered what in the world they were doing. I think you've figured it out.

    I asked on facebook

    Arkansas Game and Fish Commission , if you are referencing the National Forests you will need to contact the U. S. Forest Service. Or, if you are referencing state-owned wildlife management areas then this is not a practice that we implement. The timber marking and selling guidelines outlines “leave tree” requirements which are very important to a host of Game and non-game species. If you are referencing a specific county, WMA or forest, I can further help direct you.

    We used to camp at Rainey Brake alot when I was a kid and the area manager was sitting with us one morning having breakfast and saw a big dead limb in a tree in the campground. He told us to watch out for it and that he was going to TRY to get permission to cut it. He said the he wasn't allowed to cut anything standing without getting permission first and the agency didn't want them cutting dead trees because of the wood peckers.
