Analysis Completed

2014 Red Pine Salvage

On September 4, 2014, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest was impacted by a windstorm. As a result, many trees were damaged and uprooted. Following the storm, early efforts by the CNNF were focused on public safety and in clearing campgrounds, roads and impacted trails. The CNNF is proposing to treat about 222 acres of damaged red pine stands through a salvage harvest (184 acres) and commercial thinning (38 acres) this fall and winter. Red pine, once blown over, deteriorates more rapidly than many other tree species and is subject to insect and disease introduction and wood-rotting fungi. The purpose of the project is utilization of the damaged timber before it loses value; reforestation of affected stands; and improvement of the health of the red pine stands affected by the storm. Prompt salvage, site preparation, and hazardous fuel reduction would also return the sites to a productive condition as soon as possible and reduce threats to adjacent undamaged stands.

Lakewood Southeast Project

This proposal would use timber management, prescribed fire, and planting to move the forest toward the forest plan desired conditions. It would include timber harvest, prescibed burning, stand tending and reforestation, access, and wildlife habitat.

Park Falls Hardwoods

The USDA Forest Service, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF), Medford-Park Falls Ranger District intends to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to document the analysis and disclose the environmental effects of proposed land management activities, and corresponding alternatives within the Park Falls Hardwoods project area. Projects proposed are for improving and maintaining the health of primarily mid to late successional forest and associated wildlife species through timber harvest and regeneration. Legal Description of the project area: Townships 37, 38, and 39 North, Range 3 East, 4th Principal Meridian; Price County, Wisconsin.
