Document Publish Date: 11/22/2011
Summary: It is my decision to authorize the Sir Galahad Commercial Thinning and Density Management project, treating approximately 328 acres in the Matrix, Riparian Reserve and Late-Successional Reserve land use allocations. The project will implement Alternative Two described in the Sir Galahad Commercial Thinning and Density Management EA (pp. 4-11). This alternative will manage Matrix stands allocated to the General Forest Management Area for full site occupancy to maximize future timber volume by thinning on a generally even-spacing. The project area is located in Section 3, T. 24 S., R. 6 W.; Sections 25 and 35, T. 23 S., R. 6 W.; and Section 19, T. 23 S., R. 5, Willamette Meridian.
