UPDATE | Pope Resources postpones Hansville spraying ahead of community meeting

Pope Resources announced today that it would be postponing plans to spray several herbicides on lands around Hansville.

Officials with Pope also said the group would be scheduling a community meeting to discuss concerns raised by the public associated with the group’s intent to conduct aerial application of glyphosate and other chemicals on 330 acres of forest lands.

“We heard loud and clear the community’s concerns about our proposed application,” said Adrian Miller, director of administration and corporate affairs. “As members of this community, we thought it would be best to take a pause and have a thoughtful and direct conversation with our neighbors before any potential application.”

Pope Resources will be publishing the location and date of the meeting once it has been established.
