Rayonier Fahnestock Access
Permit Rayonier to reconstruct approximately 400 ft of road and construct another 800 ft to access private timber land. Total right-of-way length would be 1292 ft by 60 ft in width. Total acreage would be 1.7 acres.
Commercially variable density thin (thinning, heavy thinning, gaps up to two acres in size, and skips) up to 70 harvest acres, to be achieved through a timber sale/stewardship contract (uneven-aged harvesting).
Sell property that is surplus to Forest Service needs. The property contains a number of structures\improvements, including but not limited to two residences.
