Summary: The proposed action is to salvage trees blown down during 2012 and 2013 winter storms throughout the greater Camas Valley (see Figure 1). Salvage harvest would take place on 10.8 acres adjacent to the 28-8-31.1 road, individual trees adjacent to Upper Camas Road and 28-8-29.2 road as well as individual trees located adjacent to the 29-9-27.3 road. In compliance with the 2011-2013 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Biological Opinion (Tails# 13420-2011-F-0012) and Letter of Concurrence to extend programmatic activities (Tails #: 01EOFW00-2010-I-0196), salvaged trees would be removed only from the existing road prism in late successional reserves and northern spotted owl critical habitat. Salvage outside of late successional reserves would occur within 400 feet of an existing road. Standing trees with snapped out tops would remain on site as snags and no live standing trees would be cut unless they pose a danger to human safety. Snags or down wood that existed prior to the 2012-2013 wind events would not be removed. Units 1 and 2 have scattered blowdown trees, approximately 40 percent of the trees in the units would be salvaged and approximately 5 trees per acre remain standing and would not be harvested.
