Project: Anaktuvuk Thin Project Environmental Assessment

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Glendale
NEPA #: OR118-06-010  Environmental Assessment / FONSI
Document Publish Date: 3/26/2009
Summary: The Glendale Field Manager is proposing several management actions that have been analyzed within the Anaktuvuk Thin Project Environmental Assessment (EA) Number OR-118-06-010. The EA recognizes the need to manage O&C lands for permanent forest production and analyzes the predicted environmental effects of timber harvesting and other forest management activities. The proposed action includes commercially thinning approximately 145 acres of Douglas-fir plantations 39 to 48 years of age. Associated harvest activities include the re-construction of four existing routes, the construction of temporary routes and temporary stream crossings, route decommissioning and road maintenance. Created slash from harvesting would be removed for biomass utilization. Other forest management activities include: manually brushing competing vegetation, pre-commercial thinning, removing biomass, and pruning. Harvesting and other forest management treatments would total approximately 230 acres.
