Summary: The Thunderbolt Hazardous Fuels Treatment project is a component of the Thunderbolt Thinning and Hazardous Fuels Treatment Environmental Assessment (# DOI-BLM-OR-R040-2010-011-EA).

No merchantable timber will be removed from these areas. This project is located in the Little River and Middle North Umpqua River Fifth-field Watersheds in Sections 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, and 33 of T. 26 S., R. 2 W., Willamette Meridian.
