CARSON CITY, Nev. — The U.S. Forest Service says it plans to begin restoration work this month in the Angora Fire area at Lake Tahoe after a federal judge rejected arguments by environmental groups that logging burned areas would harm the blackbacked woodpecker and other wildlife.
In an order filed in Sacramento, U.S. District Judge Garland Burrell granted the federal agency summary judgment against Earth Island Institute and Center for Biological Diversity.
