Project: FY 2007/2008 Programmatic Timber Salvage Project

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Salem
Resource Area: Marys Peak
NEPA #: OR-080-07-07  Decision Rationale
Document Publish Date: 10/25/2007
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has conducted an environmental analysis for the Fiscal Year 2007/2008 Programmatic Timber Salvage Project, which is documented in the Fiscal Year 2007/2008 Programmatic Timber Salvage Environmental Assessment (EA # OR080-07-07) and the associated project file. The Proposed Action of the Fiscal Year 2007/2008 Programmatic Timber Salvage Project EA is to remove a portion of the blow down and damaged trees within LSR (Late-Successional Reserve), RR (Riparian Reserve), Matrix and AMA (Adaptive Management Area) LUAs (Land Use Allocations) 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 while reducing the potential removal of wood fiber due to illegal firewood and/or timber theft and also improve feasibility for tree planting. Timber sales will be offered in Fiscal Year 2007 and 2008. Trees will be ground based and skyline yarded on approximately 90 acres annually (180 acres total). A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed on August 20, 2007 and the EA and FONSI were then made available for public review.
