South Fork Little Butte Forest Management Scoping Letter DOI-BLM-M060-2015-0001-EA Planning in Progress
The BLM is proposing to conduct forest management activities on land allocated as Matrix in the Medford District Resource Management Plan (RMP). The activities that may be proposed include pre-commercial thinning, commercial timber harvest, and post treatment fuels reduction. Transportation management activities, including road construction, maintenance, and decommissioning may also be proposed on BLM-administered lands in the South Fork Little Butte Creek area. Timber would be harvested using tractor, cable, or helicopter yarding systems. The proposed action would utilize a combination of commercial timber sale contract(s) and service contracts.
