Forest service whistleblower claims mismanagement in Southern Appalachia

The AP reports here that an archaeologist with the United States Forest Service is claiming "[i]n a whistleblower action filed Friday . . . that the agency has illegally ignored the true nature of the region's forests in an effort to justify increased logging and prescribed burning on 3 million acres in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina and Virginia."
