Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes commercial thinning of approximately 512 acres of mid-seral forest stands, 45-51 years old, in two separate proposed timber sales: Slim Big Jim (160 acres) and Sherlock Home (352 acres). These proposed sales are located in the Little River & Lower-South Umpqua River Watersheds within the Timber Management Area and Riparian Management Area. It is anticipated that the proposed timber sales would yield approximately 5.1 million board feet (5.1 MMBF) of timber in support of local and regional manufacturers and economies. The proposed units are located in Sections 09, 19, and 31; T27S R03W; Willamette Meridian (W.M.) and Section 25; T27S R04W; W.M.

Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes commercial thinning of approximately 512 acres of mid-seral forest stands, 45-51 years old, in two separate proposed timber sales: Slim Big Jim (160 acres) and Sherlock Home (352 acres). There is a need to treat mid-seral stands that are currently overstocked to maintain stand vigor in the Timber Management Area (TMA) and maintain/enhance stand diversity in the Riparian Management Area (RMA). The purpose of the proposed project would be to reduce the stand densities through commercial thinning prescriptions in a cost-efficient manner following 2008 ROD/RMP Management Objectives.
