According to new research released by the Heritage Forests Campaign, the U.S. Forest Service is moving ahead with new activities in over twenty inventoried roadless areas, despite agency assurances that these areas will be protected while their fate is in dispute.

The HFC report, "Broken Ground," analyzes the Federal Register, news articles and the Forest Service’s own website, to reveal projects in the pipeline, including logging and road construction in Alaska, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and Wyoming oil and gas drilling in Colorado, Nevada and Utah; and Roads, phosphate exploration, and mining in Idaho's Sage Creek Roadless Area.
