Easement Update

RFFI, The Conservation Fund and Save the Redwoods League have made significant progress toward the sale of a conservation easement on the Usal Redwood Forest (URF).

Usal Redwood Forest Ultimately, the easement will be purchased by The Conservation Fund with the majority of the financing provided by the Wildlife Conservation Board. The easement will prohibit future fragmentation and development, protect stream buffers and limit harvest to a sustainable level in perpetuity.

The state bond freeze that had delayed the easement sale has now been lifted and RFFI is able to move forward. The required appraisal of the URF easement's value is nearly complete, and RFFI hopes that the Wildlife Conservation Board will include the purchase of the easement on its November agenda.

We would like to thank Congressman Mike Thompson, State Senator Pat Wiggins, Assemblyman Wes Chesbro, Assemblywoman Noreen Evans and their staffs for their strong support in helping RFFI secure funding for the Usal easement.
