NEPA #: OR-104-07-03  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 6/21/2007
Summary: This environmental assessment analyzes the environmental impacts associated with the Swiftwater Field Office's proposal for a commercial thinning and density management project. The proposed commercial thinning and density management would occur on two units (approximately 206 acres) of mid-seral, second-growth forest located in the Elk Creek Fifth-Field Watershed in Section 27; T21S, R07W; W.M. Of the 206 acres of treatment, approximately 11 acres would be removed for the development of spur roads. This project is within the General Forest Management Area, Riparian Reserve, and unmapped Late-Successional Reserve Land Use Allocations. This project is designed to contribute to the Roseburg District's annual allowable sale quantity of 45 million board feet as declared in the Roseburg District Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan (ROD/RMP, pg. 8) and help forest stands develop late-successional characteristics and conditions. This project is in conformance with management direction from the ROD/RMP.
