Summary: The proposed action is to increase the quantity of large wood (pieces of wood greater than 8 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter) to both Hail and Committee Creeks, tributaries of the lower North Fork. In the process, the project would be to remove conifers that are outcompeting native riparian species along the stream corridor. This will help to stabilize two actively down-cutting systems by adding roughness to the channel. This will help to slow stream velocities which will, in turn, allow for sediment deposition to occur, and thus beginning the process of aggradation.
