Summary: It is my decision to authorize the Root Canal Commercial Thinning as a portion of the original proposed Root Canal sale included in the Proposed Action Alternative that is described in Chapters 1 and 2 of the Little River MMX Thinning Environmental Assessment (EA) (NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-R040-2010-010-EA; pgs. 1-24) and below (q.v. pgs. 1-4). Root Canal Commercial Thinning will occur on eight units (approximately 201 acres) of second-growth forest approximately 35-56 years old located in the Little River Fifth-field Watershed in Sections 18, 29 and 30 of T. 27 S., R. 2 W., and Sections 23 and 25 of T. 27 S., R. 3 W., Willamette Meridian (Figure 1). In addition, approximately 2.1 acres will be removed for the development of spur roads and rights-of-ways. Root Canal Commercial Thinning will provide approximately 2.34 million board feet (2.34 MMBF) of timber available for auction.
