Environmental Assessment NEPA#: DOI-BLM-OR-R040-2009-0005-EA Planning in Progress
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes commercial thinning of approximately 512 acres of mid-seral forest stands, 45-51 years old, in two separate proposed timber sales: Slim Big Jim (160 acres) and Sherlock Home (352 acres). There is a need to treat mid-seral stands that are currently overstocked to maintain stand vigor in the Timber Management Area (TMA) and maintain/enhance stand diversity in the Riparian Management Area (RMA). The purpose of the proposed project would be to reduce the stand densities through commercial thinning prescriptions in a cost-efficient manner following 2008 ROD/RMP Management Objectives.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Swiftwater Field Office proposes commercial thinning of approximately 512 acres of mid-seral forest stands, 45-51 years old, in two separate proposed timber sales: Slim Big Jim (160 acres) and Sherlock Home (352 acres). These proposed sales are located in the Little River & Lower-South Umpqua River Watersheds within the Timber Management Area and Riparian Management Area. It is anticipated that the proposed timber sales would yield approximately 5.1 million board feet (5.1 MMBF) of timber in support of local and regional manufacturers and economies. The proposed units are located in Sections 09, 19, and 31; T27S R03W; Willamette Meridian (W.M.) and Section 25; T27S R04W; W.M.

The Project Design Features that will be implemented as part of Sherlock Home are described on pages 4-12 of the Slim Sherlock Commercial Thinning EA. These project design features have been developed into contract stipulations and will be implemented as part of the timber sale contract. Sherlock Home Commercial Thinning will occur on six units (approximately 281 acres) of mid-seral, second-growth forest approximately 45-51 years old located in the Little River Watershed in Sections 19 and 31 of T. 27 S., R. 3 W. and in Section 25 of T. 27 S., R. 4 W.
