NEPA #: EA# OR-104-08-05  Finding of No Significant Impact
Document Publish Date: 8/04/2009
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office will perform density management on approximately 1,459 acres of mid-seral forest stands, 40-77 years old, in five separate proposed timbersales: Bear Bones (215 acres), Bucko (266 acres), Cox Pit (247 acres), General Lee (296 acres), and Mr. Bennet (435 acres). Within the 1,459 acres, approximately 32 acres will be cleared or brushed for spur right-of-ways or roads to access the harvest areas. These sales are located in the Elk Creek/Umpqua River Fifth-field Watershed within the Late Successional Management Area (LSMA) Land Use Allocation and will yield approximately 15.2 million board feet (15.2 MMBF) of timber in support of local and regional manufacturers and economies. The units are located in the Elk Creek/Upper Umpqua Fifth-Field Watershed in Sections 27 and 35; T21S R04W; Willamette Meridian (W.M.) Sections 9, 15, 20, 21, 23, and 27; T22S R04W; W.M.; and Section 3; T23S R04W; W.M.
