The ultimate day of reckoning for Dysart Woods
The effort to protect Dysart Woods is more than 40 years old
October 15, 2004
Ohio has already lost more than 99.996 percent of the ancient forest that once covered 95 percent of the state. It is ironic with a state that had among the most forest historically that we have among the least that is still in its original old growth state. Dysart Woods is a National Natural Landmark. The ultimate day is upon Dysart Woods, with mining now approaching to well within the safety zone of the ancient forest. Dysart Defenders and the Buckeye Forest Council have applied for a stay to stop mining while the appeal hearing continues. Now it is time to put a halt to it because the mining is almost near enough to harm the ancient forest. Past mining by Ohio Valley Coal Company has impacted parts of the watershed already. But now the mining will be all around and under the old growth forest, unless the stay from Friday’s hearing is won.
