I'm glad to see a local business get some help from the government but on the other hand it's tax payer money that this country doesn't have.

Congrats Nathan!
Our Cal. logging business' has been beaten down and nearly driven out of existence. It's good to see something positive.
Best wishes to the Bamfords.

I agree as well. More red desert about to appear. Destruction of the forest, rip and tear. Wheres all the Sierra Club people when you really need them. This logging company is one of the worst.

Typical Berzerkely nonsense. Maybe you'll be happy once the forests have all burned down since you SC dorks think forest thinning is the same as clear cutting.

Calling people names only makes your argument less appealing.

Your attack against the Bamfords comes from a mindset that is common is Berkeley, so it's fitting that your isp is from there.

My family has a home in Clipper Mills and I've known the Bamfords for 20 years. The Bamfords are one of the "real" families on the mountain, and they've likely been there a lot longer than you.

I've seen the California lumber industry nearly destroyed by government regs and enviromentalists who believe that it's evil to do anything in the forests. That is, of course, until their own cabin in Tahoe comes under threat, then they change their toon about forest management. That fact is, we have far more trees now than we had 100 years ago and we could & should have a healthy lumber industry today.

I supervised and inspected Bamfords logging off and on for over 15 years and they were always with in the constraints of their contract and did an excellent job. I am glad to see that they got the grant and what they are doing is going to improve the forest and reduce the fire hazard. Those that opose this type of work don't know what they are talking about.

I know Nathan Bamford and I don't have anything good to say about him. You don't know what I know and you haven't seen what I've seen! Works both ways!

This grant should of went to a company that doesn't surround themselves with drama.
