Roseburg

Documents in Project

Environmental Assessment OR-104-07-07 Planning Completed
The O.M. Hubbard II Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the environmental impacts associated with the Swiftwater Field Office's proposal for the second phase of an ongoing density management study (DMS) that includes commercial thinning and density management treatments. The DMS was formally initiated in 1993 by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Pacific Northwest Research Station, US Geological Survey, and Oregon State University. O.M. Hubbard II utilizes the same treatment area boundaries that were used in the first phase of implementation of the density management study in 1996-1998. The proposed commercial thinning and density management would occur on one unit (approximately 135 acres) of mid-seral, second-growth forest located in the Upper Umpqua 5th Field Watershed in Section 19 of T. 26 S., R. 7 W. and Section 24 of T. 26 S., R. 8 W., Willamette Meridian. There is an additional 97 acres of untreated, mid-seral stands and 14 acres of early-seral stands that are also part of the study but are not proposed for harvest. Of the 135 acres of treatment, no acres would be removed for the development of spur roads. This project is within the General Forest Management Area and Riparian Reserve Land Use Allocations. This project is in conformance with management direction from the ROD/RMP.

Of the 135 acres of treatment, no acres would be removed for the development of spur roads. This project is within the General Forest Management Area (83 acres) and Riparian Reserve (52 acres) Land Use Allocations and would approximately 763 thousand board feet (763 MBF) of timber available to support local and regional manufacturers and economies. This project is in conformance with management direction from the ROD/RMP.

Finding of No Significant Impact EA# OR-104-07-07 Planning Completed
O.M. Hubbard II Density Management Study will occur on one unit (approximately 131 acres) of mid-seral, second-growth forest located in the Upper Umpqua 5th Field Watershed in Section 19 of T. 25 S., R. 7 W. and Section 24 of T. 26 S., R. 8 W., Willamette Meridian. There is an additional 97 acres of untreated, mid-seral stands and 14 acres of early-seral stands that are also part of the study but will not be harvested. Of the 131 acres of treatment, no acres will be removed for the development of spur roads. This project is within the General Forest Management Area (79 acres) and Riparian Reserve (52 acres) Land Use Allocations and will provide approximately 763 thousand board feet (763 MBF) of timber available for auction. Approximately 463 thousand board feet (463 MBF) of timber will come from the General Forest Management Area and 300 thousand board feet (300 MBF) will come from the Riparian Reserve land use allocations. This project is in conformance with management direction from the ROD/RMP.
