State allowed logging on plateau above slope

State allowed logging on plateau above slope | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it
In recent decades the state allowed logging — with restrictions — on the plateau above the Snohomish County hillside that collapsed in last weekend’s deadly mudslide.
Garry Rogers's insight:

Land-use management by government agencies responsible for caring for the land is too focused on harvest and politics to be efficient.  The Snohomish slide might have been prevented by good management and rigorous housing development controls.  Instead, it is is an example of poor management that led to harm for our species as well as others.
