Summary: The Little Wolf Thrice project is the third harvest and the second phase of an ongoing Density Management Study (DMS). The study was formally initiated in 1993 by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Pacific Northwest Research Station, US Geological Survey, and Oregon State University (Cissel et al., 2006; pg. 3). Prior to the 2008 ROD/RMP, the Final - Roseburg District Proposed Resources Management Plan / Environmental Roseburg District Record Of Decision and Resource Management Plan Impact Statement (USDI, 1994) was the controlling document for land management on Roseburg BLM administered lands. Little Wolf Thrice would use the same treatment area boundaries that were used in the first phase of implementation of the density management study. The Phase I treatment was analyzed under the Little Wolf Density Management Environmental Assessment (EA) (No. OR-104-97-03) and implemented as described in the Little Wolf Density Management Decision Record (April 29, 1997). The Phase I treatment was implemented in 1998 (Cissel et al., 2006; pg. 131).
