Collaborative Forestry Process
The Roseburg District proposes a stepwise process open to interested members of the public, local government, tribal interests and State and Federal agencies. The process would entail an intensive scoping process utilizing a facilitated, project management approach where participants would work together to:
- Develop at least one moist forest habitat development project and at least one dry forest fire resiliency/habitat development project (estimated scale of 200-300 acres per project).
- Develop the projects from the ground up utilizing BLM specialists for technical support as needed.
- Utilize the design process as a forum for addressing social, environmental, and economic values.
- Utilize the collective experience of project design to develop guiding parameters or principles that BLM could then apply to the development of a full year’s worth of conservation forestry projects.
