Summary: The South River FY 2009 Commercial Thinning Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzed three alternatives. In addition to Alternative One - No Action (EA, p. 5), two action alternatives were analyzed. These consist of Alternative Two - Even-Spaced Thinning in the General Forest Management Area (p. 13) and Alternative Three - Variable-Spaced Thinning of Stands in the General Forest Management Area Located in Spotted Owl Critical Habitat (p.14). Project design features common to Alternatives Two and Three are described at pages 5 to 13. Alternative Three is the alternative selected for implementation.
