The article discusses the easements of Western Montana land owned by Plum Creek Company. It is cited that Plum Creek has the problem of Montana properties to be legally accessed over national forest roads. The company for decades has easements to national forest road that permit it to haul timber. According to Mark Rey, undersecretary of Agriculture, federal lawyers had met with Plum Creek for proposed amendment to make clear the easements that stated the company may use old logging roads in Montana for commercial, industrial and residential development. The amendment is stated to be a guide to same Forest Service road easement throughout the nation. The National Forest Roads and Trails Act passed by Congress had authorized system roads with easement to purposes viewed as necessary.
