beginning of your comments. However, we will not consider anonymous 
comments. We will make all submissions from organizations or

representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, available 
for public inspection in their entirety.

activities would occur on Plum Creek Timber Company Lands in 
Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas.
