Project: Ashland Resource Area Road Clearing & Roadside Hazard Removal

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Ashland
NEPA #: OR116-08-31  Categorical Exclusion

Summary: A recent storm having hurricane force winds occurred in early January 2008. The storm blew down numerous trees which are now blocking roads accessing private property, private industrial forest lands, and BLM-administered lands. The BLM proposes to remove trees blocking system roads, as well as hazardous trees leaning toward the road that could fall onto the road. This action would provide private land owners with access to their land, allow the BLM to access Federal lands for resource management and fire protection, and provide the public with safe passage on these roads. Only trees lying fully or partially within the road prism will be removed and hazard trees leaning toward the road that could fall onto the road will be felled and removed.
