Summary: The purpose of this project is to improve worker and public safety to the heavily used hang glider sites on Wood Rat Mountain. The project will remove road side hazard trees and utilize dead or dying timber along the roadside to provide commercial timber products. The project would remove and sell commercial sized trees that have died along approximately two miles of open BLM road systems in the Wood Rat Mountain area. Five live trees will be cut to increase safety adjacent to the hang glider launch site. The project is limited to 200 feet on either side of open road systems. Roads will be temporarily closed to public travel during removal operations.
