The general conflict is man versus nature, showing what the destructive consequences are when man cuts down trees in the forest. Wildlife is endangered when too many trees are destroyed since it destroys the homes of the animals in the forest. The specific conflict as shown in the book is the Beasties fighting against the logging companies to prevent them from destroying their home.

The conflict is resolved when Doug, the narrator, gives Fingers one of his eyes so that Fingers can become queen and continue the fight against the logging companies.
