NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-M080-2010-012-CX  Categorical Exclusion / Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 12/15/2010
Summary: The Glendale Field Manager has issued a Categorical Exclusion and Decision Record to place young stands that are generally between the ages of 3 - 40 years old on developmental paths toward improved vigor, greater resistance to disturbance, and desired species composition and structure. Proposed treatments include early stand thinning, vegetation competition release, pruning, and/or treatment of created slash. Mechanized equipment would be limited to chainsaws. These young stand management (YSM) treatments would be implemented on sites located throughout the Glendale Resource Area over a 5-year period (as budgets allow). Prescriptions could include all of the proposed treatments, a combination of two or three treatments, or just one treatment. Prior to treatment, proposed treatment areas would be reviewed by Glendale Resource Area specialists for necessary clearances.
