Since Feb. 26, two self-described pipeline resisters have been sitting on wooden platforms in trees near the spot where the pipeline would cross the Appalachian Trail in the Jefferson National Forest, just across the state line from Giles County.

Unless stopped, the “tree-sit” protest “will prevent MVP from engaging in lawful construction activities,” the motion stated.

Mountain Valley contends the protesters are violating forest service rules while it has received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Forest Service and the federal Bureau of Land Management for its 303-mile buried pipeline.

A Circuit Court judge has yet to enter an order or schedule a hearing since the request for a restraining order was filed Friday.
