Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record OR117-06-02 Planning Completed
A Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Tennessee Lime Landscape Management Project have been completed. The decision is to defer the commercial timber sale harvest and associated road construction, and implement other stand harvest and other treatments as outlined in Alternative 2. This includes 273 acres of Density Management / Modified Group Select that will be completed under stewardship, special forest products (e.g. poles), or small sale contracts, and would include biomass extraction. Other activities include up to 40 miles of road maintenance; 1 mile of road renovation; 0.25 miles of road decommissioning; 167 acres of young stand management, and 507 acres of fuel hazard reduction.

Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record EA # OR117-06-02 Planning Completed
The Grants Pass Field Manager has issued the third Decision Record for the Tennessee Lime Landscape Management Project. This Decision Record is proposing the treatment of 1,082 acres of fuels hazard reduction treatments in 46 units. The proposed activity is analyzed under the Tennessee Lime Landscape Management Project Environmental Assessment (LMP EA #OR 117-06-02). The Tennessee Lime Project Planning Area is on BLM lands outlying the community of Selma, Oregon. The legal description of the Planning Area is T38S-R8W-Sections 33, 35; T39S-R8W-Sections 1, 3, 5, 11, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 29 in Josephine County, Willamette Meridian. Fuels hazard reduction treatments would be accomplished through a series of activities. Initial fuels reduction would be accomplished through forest thinning which greatly reduces the potential for surface fires transitioning to crown fires. Excess slash not removed as small timber, pole, or biomass maybe hand piled.
