Scoping Letter DOI-BLM-OR-M060-2011-0016-EA Planning Completed
The Medford District Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Ashland Resource Area, is proposing ecological restoration projects, one of which results in the removal of timber under the Pilot Joe Timber Sale. Additional projects may include noncommercial thinning in young stands, and biomass and timber removal under stewardship authorities. These are the initial projects under the Middle Applegate Pilot Project, and are located in the Middle Applegate Watershed in the vicinity between Cantrall-Buckley Park and Thompson Creek. While collaboration and public information events about the Pilot have been ongoing since October 2010, this Notice opens the formal scoping period under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The initial projects will be analyzed under the Pilot Joe Environmental Assessment.

Finding of No Significant Impact DOI-BLM-OR-M060-2011-0016-EA Planning Completed
The Medford District Bureau of Land Management, Ashland Resource Area (BLM) analyzed forest management activities, fuels reduction and maintenance, and transportation maintenance, including road decommissioning, on approximately 889 acres of BLM-administered lands in the Pilot Joe Demonstration Project Environmental Assessment (EA). I have determined that Alternative 2, the selected alternative, with the associated project design features from the Pilot Joe Demonstration Project, is not a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment, individually or cumulatively with other actions in the general area.
