Summary: Basin Arizona is a forest density management project identified in the Upper Umpqua Watershed Plan (EA # OR -104-02-09, pgs. V, 5 - 6) and its subsequent Decision Record (October 8, 2003, pg. 2). This decision is consistent with the Roseburg District Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan (1995 ROD/RMP) adopted in June 1995 and the Upper Umpqua Watershed Plan (June 17, 2003). The implementation of this decision will meet the following objective from the Upper Umpqua Watershed Plan (pg. 2): For mid seral forests on BLM lands designated for wildlife and fish needs, accelerate stand diversity and development of late-successional characteristics such as large crown ratios, larger lateral branches, multiple canopy layers, and a greater number of larger conifers while maintaining a healthy ecosystem.
