Categorical Exclusion OR 118-08-008 Planning Completed
The Proposed Action is to manually treat forest fuels on approximately 988 acres of BLM land using hand tools and chainsaws. Small trees and brush would be thinned. Trees may be limbed to reduce ladder fuels. Slash would be hand piled, covered and burned, or removed by hand from the site. Trees and other vegetation to be cut would be less than seven inches diameter at breast height (DBH). Residual hardwood and conifers would be spaced approximately fourteen to forty feet apart. Low intensity underburning might be prescribed after initial treatment within timber stands to ensure desired fuel loadings are maintained typically within 5 years of treatment. Firelines would be less than eighteen inches wide and would be constructed using hand tools and chainsaws only.
