Logging in the Phillips School Forest will continue as planned this spring, following a 7-1 decision by the board of education on Monday.

The scheduled timber harvest came under scrutiny earlier this month when the scope of the harvest became widely known among the community — particularly amongst those who are active users of the ski, biking, hiking, and snowshoeing trails that are available for public use on the property. The trail system has been created through volunteer- and student-led efforts over a number of years and is regularly maintained by volunteers.
