Paul Dubuque, DNR forester from Two Harbors, a 11:30am today, bowing to pressure from the Gunflint Scenic Byways Committee and residents of the Gunflint Trail announced the withdrawal of the proposed Clear Cutting timber sales along the Gunflint. The sale was schedule to be sold in mid June.

In making the announcement Dubuque has requested to meet with the Byways Committee. And he has offered to work with the Gunflint community to develop an acceptable timber sale plan for the Gunflint. He went on to say he hopes to submit a new timber sales plan by November.While we many have won the battle over this sale for now, we still have to make sure that Dubuque's November timber harvesting plan is something that the Gunflint community can accept.
