Project: Grants Pass Resource Area Maintenance Brushing (FY2008)

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Grants Pass
NEPA #: OR-117-08-10  Categorical Exclusion
Document Publish Date: 5/13/2008
Summary: Hardwood and brush species on approximately 117 acres would be cut using chainsaws to accelerate stand development, create more fire resistant stands with larger trees which have thicker, more fire resistant bark, and reduce fuel ladders and stand densities, all of which help reduce the probability of a stand replacement fire. The goal of the project is to improve growth of brushed/thinned stands, and shift stand species composition and structure to desired conditions.
