Gunflint Associations Ask DNR to Withdraw Clear Cuts

The Gunflint Trail two largest organizations - the Gunflint Scenic Byways Committee and the Gunflint Trail Association, in comments delivered to DNR forester Paul Dubuque, requested that the DNR's proposed clear cut along the Gunflint Trail, near the South Brule Road " be withdrawn and reanalyzed by giving equal weight to aesthetic considerations that seem to have been given to the economic considerations."

In their comments the two organizations gave the DNR until June 1 (about two weeks ) to respond. If a response is not forthcoming by then or if the requested is turned down further actions are anticipated.
