DON'T CUT BIG IVY is a grassroots campaign organized by local residents, businesses, farmers, families, and a coalition of outdoor enthusiasts. The U.S. Forest Service recently proposed opening most of the Big Ivy section of Pisgah National Forest to commercial logging. Please join us in encouraging the Forest Service to reconsider its timber designations and protect the wild old-growth forests of Big Ivy. 

We'll be hosting a meeting in early 2015 with U.S. Forest Service leaders. Check back soon for specifics.

In the meantime, contact the Forest Service NOW to comment on the proposed plan. Public comments are still being accepted, and they will play a critical role in the final management decisions for Big Ivy. Your comments do not need to be lengthy. A simple, brief comment will go a long way. Email
