Feud in Butler Hollow

Jacqueline Froelich

Mark Twain National Forest is proposing restoration of Butler Hollow in southern Barry County, Missouri along the Arkansas border. The Ozark Highlands preserve was originally a white oak-savannah, rich with glades. Decades of logging and fire suppression eventually transformed the forest into a dense red oak-cedar habitat. And as Jacqueline Froelich reports, certain residents who cherish the forest in its present state want it left alone.

Jacqueline Froelich is an investigative reporter and news producer for Ozarks at Large.
