Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Burns District is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the impacts of herbicide treatments that will be used to slow the spread of noxious and other weeds and invasive plants. Herbicides are one of several tools used by the District to control noxious and other weeds and invasive vegetation to achieve landscape health objectives. The EA will update and replace the District's 1998 vegetation management EA, and will allow the District to use 17 herbicides in its vegetation treatment programs. The EA is scheduled to be completed in spring 2012.
