The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Wyoming’s favor on a forest management issue.

Wyoming had intervened in a lawsuit that challenged a forest management plan for the Black Hills National Forest. Wyoming supported the U.S. Forest Service’s plan for dealing with bark beetles, and timber management that created jobs and allowed grazing, but environmental groups challenged that plan. The appeals court Tuesday upheld the plan.

Governor Mead said he is pleased with the decision. He added “we wanted to join the Forest Service in defending agriculture, the timber industry and the health of our forests. I am glad we prevailed.”
