Developing Proposal

Buckeye Habitat Improvement Project

This project will create habitats that are missing/under-represented in the project area including young forest and grassy/shrubby areas. It will maintain oak-hickory forests and native pine forests. Work will be commercial and non-commercial.

Secondary Access Butcher #1-A Well

Northwood Energy Corp is requesting a special use permit from Forest Service to clear a well tender access road for ATV use only. Access will be about 150ft long x 10ft wide. It will be used as needed about 2 times a week for the life of the well.

Under Analysis

2015 Gypsy Moth Slow the Spread Project

Treat 39,818 ac of the Athens Unit with pheromone mating disruption and treat 513 ac of the Athens Unit with the larvacide Gypchek followed by mating disruption. Treatments would be aerially applied.

Pine Grove ATV Connector Trail

The proposed action is to construct approximately 5 miles of trail including bridges. The goal is to connect the Hanging Rock ATV trails south of SR 650 to the Superior ATV trails north of CR 27.

Stone Church Habitat and White Pine Health Improvement Project

The project proposal is to create early successional forest (333 ac), create and expand wildlife openings (58 ac) and improve the health and vigor of white pine plantations (297 ac). All actions would be in white pine plantations.

Analysis Completed

2014 Gypsy Moth STS Treatment Project

The proposal is to treat gypsy moth populations by applying Gypchek, mating disruption pheremone & Bacillus thuringiensis var kurstaki (Btk), and mating disrupting pheromone alone to approximately 13,857 acres of the Athens District of the WNF.

Big 4 Wetland Enhancement

The Ohio Division of Mineral Resource Management (DMRM) has proposed installing two limestone berms and one earthen berm with a rock spillway across the valley to prevent stream channelization while increasing retention times.

Horse Trail Re-Route

The WNF proposes to re-route a portion of the main loop of horse trail around the Lake Vesuvius Rec Area. The re-route is proposed to improve safety for horses and riders by moving the horse trail away from the archery trail.

Ohio Power Company Amendments

Improve utility performance by removing old lines and putting in new lines closer to the road.
