Analysis of 4 alternatives to replace or repair the road-stream crossing on FSR 3513-110; and possibly decommission segments of FSR 3513 and FSR 3513-110. The selected alternative could change access to these FSRs.

White King Soil Borrow Site Restoration

The stabilization of current erosion patterns; addition of organic material to rebuild soil structure, biological function, and stability; and establishment of a more diverse and effective vegetative ground cover through invasive plants treatments.

On Hold

FP Amendment-Eastside Screens Interim Wildlife Standard to cut White Fir Over 21-Inch DBH

Would allow removal of individual white fir trees %u2265 21%u201D DBH to protect old-growth, restore species composition and stand structure, maintain diversity components, and improve forest resiliency to fire, drought, insects and disease.
