Summary: Little River MMX FINAL FONSI - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes thinning on approximately 1,504 acres of forest stands, 35-62 years old, in the Little River MMX Thinning Environmental Assessment (EA). Within this EA, there are four proposed timbersales: Root Canal (546 acres), Baker Street (212 acres), Horseshoe (542 acres), and Emile Islands (204 acres) (EA, pg.1 ). In addition, up to approximately 21 acres would be cleared or brushed for spur right-of-ways to access the harvest areas (EA, pg. 9). Since the EA was completed, decision was made to split Root Canal (546 acres) into two timbersales: Root Canal (264 acres) and Red Butte (282 acres).

Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes thinning of approximately 1,504 acres of forest stands, 35-62 years old, in four proposed timbersales: Root Canal (546 acres), Baker Street (212 acres), Horseshoe (542 acres), and Emile Islands (204 acres). Collectively, these proposed sales are referred to as the Little River MMX Commercial Thinning project (Figures 1-5, Appendix G). The stands in the Little River MMX project area are densely stocked stands that are currently at or beyond the appropriate relative density for thinning. The need for action is to provide substantial timber volume in support of the local economy and, within the reserved land-use allocations, accelerate development of habitat components for the northern spotted owl. The purpose of the action is to reduce stand stocking in a manner that produces commercial timber in a cost-efficient manner while enhancing habitat for the northern spotted owl and improves vigor in the residual stand.
