Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Glendale
NEPA #: OR118-04-014  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 8/29/2005
Summary: The Glendale Resource Area will implement commercial timber harvesting activities analyzed in the Slim Jim Project Environmental Assessment (EA-OR118-04-014) through the Slim Jim Timber Sale and Big Jim Timber Sale. The Slim Jim Timber Sale consists of 215 acres of commercial density management in the Late Successional Reserve (LSR) and portions of Riparian Reserves. Treatment units are located in Township (T) 31 S, Range (R) 3 W, Sections 19, 29; T 31S, R 4W, Sections 25, 27; T 32S, R 4W, Sections 1, 3, 11, 13, and T 32S, R 3W, Section 7, 17, 18. A total of 0.6 miles of temporary roads will be constructed to access units. Activity fuels treatments (residual slash from density management treatments) will also occur on all 215 acres of commercial density management under the Slim Jim Timber Sale by slash/handpile/burn or lop and scatter depending on the fuel loadings after density management. Future underburns may also be implemented within 2-7 years following the initial treatments and would be driven by the condition of the stand and re-growth of slashed vegetation. The Big Jim Timber Sale is five acres of regeneration harvest located in Township (T) 32 S, Range (R) 3 W, Section 6 of the Matrix land use allocation. The regeneration harvest unit will be treated for activity fuels by slash/handpile/burn method. Future underburns may also be implemented within 2-7 years following the initial treatments and would be driven by the condition of the stand and re-growth of slashed vegetation. The Slim Jim Timber Sale is under implementation and the Big Jim Timber Sale is under litigation and has not been awarded.
