Im really bothered buy a lot of the stuff going on right now with our forest. Tons of info out there, lots of it false and hard to tell whats true. The bottom line is Im not happy about it and I want to get involved in trying to make a difference and do not even know where to begin.

Is any one working anything? I know of one guy (wont post names here) who is working with the rangers to try and set up an even to remove the trees being chopped down (its not the rangers like most think). Hes trying to get news coverage and stuff to help improve our image.

Im considering something like a protest at "Pine Lands Adventures". Seems to me theres some obvious kick backs going to the Super of Wharton as well as some possible corruption.

i agree, its pretty wild how blunt they wrote that. might as well of said no jeeps allowed, or any vehicle with more than 30in tires.

Gee I hope they are able to access the fire roads the blocked with trees THEY cut down..
Forest fire burning through hundreds of acres in NJ Pine Barrens | 6abc.com
I see a decent amount of Rangers and Park Police at my work. According to the ones I talked to they arent cutting down the trees. They seemed pretty believable in stating it wasnt them. Siting reasons like forest fires, and that they wouldnt destroy parts of the forest in effort to save it. They claim the trees are being cut down at night and they dont know who is doing it. They were buying deer cams at my work a few days later. They state they were trying to catch who is doing it.

With how shady the whole thing went down, who knows.
