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")
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.

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.
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.
Rocky Bend and Castle Rock Campground Decommissioning
The Hebo Ranger District was proposing to decommission the Rocky Bend and Castle Rock Campgrounds. The NEPA to decommission these campgrounds has been cancelled and future use is being re-evaluated by Forest and District Staff.
