Proposal to Put Greylock in Forest Reserve Stirs Concern

The Transcript reports that the Mount Greylock Advisory Council is very concerned about a proposal to place more of Mount Greylock’s 12,000 acreage in forest reserve. Trees in a forest reserve cannot be touched. Councilman John Kirby of Lanesboro said he was concerned that forest areas that cannot be trimmed will be subject to forest fire hazard. Half of the acreage is now in reserve. Authorities say need more land in reserve to accurately understand the impact on the mountain. Council members said the matter should be investigated further.
