Project: Deep Six Density Management

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Roseburg
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: EA # OR-105-07-04  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 3/27/2012
Summary: It is my decision to reoffer remaining components of the original Deep Six Density Management project as originally authorized. All features, conditions and requirements of the original decision remain in effect. Six units totaling 147 acres will be treated reflecting partial harvest of 15 acres of Unit 4, and seven acres of Unit 6. Adjustments in unit acreage have also reduced the size of Units 1 and 5 by one acre each. The remaining timber volume to be harvested is 2,186 thousand board feet. All authorized road construction and renovation in Units 3, 4 and 6 was completed prior to the cancellation of the original contract. The only road work remaining is the renovation of an uninventoried road in Unit 2, which is designated as a temporary road to be renovated, used and decommissioned in the same operating season.

Summary: Six units totaling 171 acres will be treated. The units are located in Sections 1 and 11, T. 29 S., R. 9 W., W.M., allocated as Late-Successional Reserve The unit numbers and their corresponding designation in the EA are as follows: Unit 1 (29-9-1A), Unit 2 (29-9-1C), Unit 3 (29-3-1D), Unit 4 (29-9-1E), Unit 5 (29-9-11A), and Unit 6 (29-9-11B). Approximately one additional acre, located entirely within unit boundaries, will be cleared for road rights-of-way. Rights-of-way clearing will not require the cutting of any trees 20 inches or greater in diameter breast height. The project will yield an estimated 2,018 thousand board feet not chargeable to the Roseburg District allowable annual sale quantity. Density management will be accomplished utilizing a combination of ground-based and cable-yarding equipment, as described in the EA (p. 11).
