Summary: The Deadman's Palm Landscape project is a proposal to thin trees and shrubs in conifer dominated forest stands on BLM-administered lands in the Applegate River-McKee Watershed. The term `landscape' refers to the project assessment which reviewed the entire project area landscape to understand the distribution of forest types and growth stages and integrate proposed treatments with existing conditions. The proposed action would utilize a combination of commercial timber sale contract(s) and service contracts to complete the proposed thinning.
