Project: Canyon Creek Salvage

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Marys Peak
NEPA #: OR080-07-12  Decision Rationale
Document Publish Date: 8/15/2007
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has conducted an environmental analysis for the Canyon Creek Salvage Project, which is documented in the Canyon Creek Salvage Environmental Assessment (EA, # OR080-07-12) and the associated project file. The Proposed Action of the Canyon Creek Salvage Project EA is to remove a portion of the blow down and damaged trees within Adaptive Management Area and Riparian Reserve Land Use Allocations (LUA's) to reduce the potential for bark beetle infestations. The proposed action will also decrease overall fire hazard and resistance to control the spread of fire and allow the timber sale purchaser of Canyon Creek Thinning (OR-080-05-301) to complete the site preparation contract requirement. A timber sale will be offered in fiscal year 2007. Trees will be ground based yarded on approximately 14 acres. A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed on July 9, 2007 and the EA and FONSI were then made available for public review. The decision documented in this Decision Rationale (DR) is based on the analysis documented in the EA. This decision authorizes the implementation of only those activities directly related to and included within the timber sale.
