Project: Middle South Umpqua/Dumont Creek Commercial Thinning & Density Management

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Roseburg
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: EA# OR105-08-08  Finding of No Significant Impact
Document Publish Date: 2/23/2010
Summary: Planning, design, and analysis for the Middle South Umpqua/Dumont Creek Commercial Thinning and Density Management project was conducted consistent with the management objectives, management direction, and Best Management Practices of the 1995 Roseburg District Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan (1995 ROD/RMP). Two alternatives were considered and analyzed in the Middle South Umpqua/Dumont Creek Commercial Thinning and Density Management EA, consisting of Alternative One (No Action) described on page 4 of the EA; and Alternative Two (Proposed Action) described at pages 4-9. Alternative Two proposed thinning and density management of 288 acres (EA, p. 6, Table 2-1). Based on further field reconnaissance and analysis, Units 29-2-21A, 29-2-33A, and 30-2-11A were dropped from the proposed action. The forest stands to be treated, totaling approximately 160 acres, are located in Sections 3, 9, and 15, T. 30 S., R. 2 W., Willamette Meridian.
