Consumers Power Special Use Authorization
Consumers Power, Inc., requests authorization to construct, operate, and maintain an underground power distribution system in a 20-foot right of way, 10-30 feet from an existing road, over approximately 510 linear feet of National Forest System land.
Indian Creek Landscape Management Project
This is a landscape-scale restoration project in the Indian Creek watershed. Activities include: plantation thinning, fish and wildlife habitat enhancement, invasive plant treatments, and road improvements.
Non-commercial thinning in Long Term Ecosystem Productivity (LTEP) plots. Trees will be cut and left as down wood in treated plots.
North Creek Culvert
Replace existing undersized 11ft culvert that is currently a passage barrier to upstream migration of fish and other aquatic organisms with an all aquatic organism passage structure.
Riparian Restoration Project
Thin about 22 acres within 6 stands of less than 80 year old Douglas-fir plantations to evaluate the effects of thinning plantations in riparian areas, with a particular focus on wood recruitment to streams, coho salmon and its habitat.
Schooner-Rock Restoration Project
Project would thin young conifer plantations in the Drift (Siletz) watershed to promote development of late-successional forest habitat and improve fish habitat by adding large woody debris to streams.
1136 Spur Road Project
1915 feet of road reconstruction and 750 feet of new construction to allow access to adjacent private timber land.
2014 Corvallis-to-the-Sea Trail Authorization
Issue an authorization for non-motorized trail over approximately 5.4 miles of National Forest System lands, between Corvallis and Harlan, using existing road and trail segments and .23 mile segment of new trail construction.
Beaver-friendly Culvert Management
Installation of flow devices and road maintenance work to control beaver damming activity and eliminate beaver-related flooding at culvert crossings that currently require constant maintenance.
Commercial Special Forest Products Program EA
The Forest-wide Special Forest Products (SFP) EA was completed in 1995. The SFP team has held annual meetings refining site-specific regulations. The intent of this EA is to document those site-specific details.
East Alsea Landscape Management Project
Commercially thin 4,200 acres of plantations, create gaps in plantations, plant some gaps in plantations, create nesting cavities and snags in plantations at up to 3 plantation trees per acre, (see "Other Project Information")
Fivemile-Bell Landscape Management Project
Proposed watershed restoration that includes upland treatments (commercially thin plantations), in-stream restoration (adding large wood, and stream channel restoration), and valley bottom management (riparian planting and meadow maintenance).
Heceta Shores Stabilization Project
Construct a shoreline protection structure to stabilize about 325 feet of embankment. The embankment is continuing to fail and poses a risk to private property and homes.
Marys Landscape Management Project
Commercially thin about 2000 acres, create nesting cavities and create coarse woody debris in plantations, decommission about 8.5 miles of road, replace culverts that block fish passage, prevent further loss of meadow habitat, and manage invasives.
Millwright Beaver Landscape Management Project
This project includes actions that would thin young, dense conifer stands less than 80 years old; enhance fish and wildlife habitats; repair, store, or decommission roads; and treat invasive plants
Niagara/Boulder Restoration Project
This project is a portion of the original North Nestucca project. Divided into two EA's to facilitate analysis. This project will commercially thin about 598 acres of 32 to 39 year old managed conifer stands and commercially thin about 285 acres.
North Fork Siuslaw Landscape Management Project
This is a landscape-scale restoration project in the North Fork Siuslaw River watershed. Activities include: plantation thinning, fish and wildlife habitat enhancement, invasive plant treatments, and road improvements.
Pixieland and Fraser Creek Restoration Projects
The purpose of the project is to restore the hydrology and native vegetation of Pixieland, an abandoned amusement park that is now part of the Forest Service ownership in the Salmon River Estuary.
Siuslaw Invasive Plant Treatment Project
Managing invasive non-native plant infestations totaling about 1966 acres (75 sites) with chemical (herbicide), manual (pulling,grubbing) and mechanical (mowing, brushing, cutting) treatment methods.
South Nestucca Restoration Project
Thinning previously burned and planted or clear-cut and planted stands using commercial or noncommercial methods. About 1,015 acres of 28-50 year old plantations and 1,311 acres of 76-100 year old plantations of off-site genetic stock.
Rocky Bend and Castle Rock Campground Decommissioning
The Hebo District Ranger is proposing to decommission Rocky Bend and Castle Rock Campgrounds. All infrastructure will be removed. Rocky Bend Campground is located on Upper Nestucca River Road, and Castle Rock is located on Oregon Highway 22.
Siuslaw Coastal Meadow Restoration
Project would enable herbicide treatment methods for restoring native coastal meadow vegetation and enhancing habitat for Oregon silverspot butterfly and other pollinators.
