Upper Peninsula loggers claim fear
of sabotage by environmentalists
LOVE MEANS NOTHING TO A TENNIS PLAYER
Upper Peninsula loggers are voic-
ing quiet fears of rising "eco-terror-
ism" - sabotage of timber harvest-
ing equipment by environmental ex-
There are no statistics on the num-
ber of incidents in Michigan.
Many loggers are reluctant to dis-
cuss them, not wanting to inspire copy-
But increasingly, loggers are
speaking out and taking steps to pro-
tect their property.
The Michigan-Wisconsin Timber
Producers Association is considering
a $10,000 camera surveillance sys-
"It's traveling just like everything
else does from California," said Carl
Theiler, the trade group's executive
secretary. "I guess it's just our turn."
"We're seeing it throughout north-
ern Wisconsin and the Upper Penin-
sula, but it's very scattered," said John
Culhane of the American Pulpwood
David Holli, a member of the
Michigan Natural Resources Com-
mission from Ishpeming, told the
Detroit Free Press of several attacks
at his logging camp in 1992.
First, the vandals punched holes
in the radiators of two tractor-size
machines called skidders.
A few nights later, they dumped
BBs and bolts into the hydraulic fluid
of the $75,000 machines, which Holli
was using to selectively harvest trees
on his own property.
Next, they removed a transmis-
sion line, filled it with a compound
used for grinding metal, wiped it clean
and replaced it. Then they stole hard-
to-replace parts from both skidders.
Total damage: about $90,000. In-
surance covered less than half.
Police have no suspects.
