The U.S. Forest Service has closed more than 300 acres of the Tahoe National Forest to the public after receiving an anonymous letter protesting plans to log in popular Deep Creek and warning that the area had been rigged with explosives. Gates to dirt roads into the fir and pine woods, located about five miles south of Truckee and west of California 89, were closed after the letter arrived, Joanne Roubique, the Truckee district ranger, said Saturday.

Logging will be limited in Sequoia National Forest and giant sequoias will be fully protected under an agreement among the state and federal governments, loggers, conservationists and others, the U.S. Forest Service said Friday. The agreement, reached after nearly 17 months of talks, will ban logging in giant sequoia groves and reduce by 22% the annual average harvest in the rest of the forest.
