Document Publish Date: 3/30/2011
Summary: The Glendale Field Manager is proposing silvicultural thinning and density management of timbered stands. The proposed activities are analyzed in the Farout Project Environmental Assessment (DOI-BLM-M080-2010-010-EA) and preliminary Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) prepared by the Glendale Resource Area, Medford District, Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The Farout Project Environmental Assessment (EA) discloses the predicted environmental effects of 745 acres of silvicultural thinning and density managment on Matrix and riparian thinning in Riparian Reserves. The proposed thinning treatments would maintain northern spotted owl habitat.
