Summary: The South River Field Office, Roseburg District, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), has completed the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Middle Fork Coquille 2007 Commercial Thinning and Density Management project.

As discussed in the EA (pp. 14-16), two additional alternatives were considered but not analyzed in detail. Units proposed for treatment were identified through operational inventories, stand examinations, and field verification by silviculture and wildlife staff. The units are located in: Sections 5, 15, 29 and 33, T. 29 S., R. 8 W.; Sections 1, 11 and 35, T. 29 S., R. 9 W.; Sections 5, 9, 15, 27 and 33, T. 30 S., R. 8 W.; and Section 3, T. 30 S., R. 9 W., Willamette Meridian.
