Obama USBLM director: Biden nominee should withdraw over tree-spiking incident

Robert Abbey, who served as the first head of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) under former President Obama, has called on President Biden’s nominee for the position to withdraw from consideration over her involvement in a 1980s “tree-spiking” action intended to sabotage logging.

Abbey, who served as BLM director from 2009 to 2012, told E&E News that he had initially supported Tracy Stone-Manning’s nomination. But said he is “now one of the people who believe that she should withdraw her name from further consideration for the BLM director position."
