Environmental Assessment DOI-BLM-OR-R040-2010-011-EA Planning Completed
The Thunderbolt Thinning and Hazardous Fuels Treatment project would occur within the Adaptive Management Area (AMA), General Forest Management Area (GFMA), Connectivity/Diversity Blocks (C/D) and Riparian Reserve land use allocations administered by the Swiftwater Field Office, Roseburg District Office BLM. This Environmental Assessment (EA) considers four alternatives (including the No Action) for thinning of approximately 1,583 acres of forest stands, that are 49-95 years old in the proposed Big Thunder, Rolling Thunder and Thundering Herd timber sales. In addition, approximately 102 acres outside of proposed timber sale units are analyzed for treatment of hazardous fuels in stands 19- 200 years old.

FINAL FONSI - The Thunderbolt Thinning and Hazardous Fuels Treatment Environmental Assessment considered three action alternatives for the proposed thinning of 1583 acres of forest stands 49 to 95 years old and creation of a shaded fuel break on 193 acres. The selected alternative, Proposed Action Alternative 3, will apply variable density thinning to stands in three timber sales: Big Thunder (668 acres), Thundering Herd (430), and Rolling Thunder (485 acres). In addition, approximately 6 acres will be cleared for spur right-of-ways to access the harvest areas. A shaded fuel break will reduce hazardous fuels and improve firefighting effectiveness in the event of a wildfire in the project area.
