Developing Proposal

Bluemile Restoration Project

Thinning in overstocked stands; fuels reduction to reduce fire hazard; and vegetation treatments to improve mule deer habitat.

Hog Creek Oregon Spotted Frog Habitat Enhancement Project

The district is proposing to implement several wildlife habitat and meadow enhancement activities in the Hog Creek system.

Klamath Personal Use Road-side Firewood

The road system of the Klamath Ranger District is inundated with dead and down trees. This proposal will help with road maintenance and clearing accumulation of road-side downed wood. Work would be accomplished using the personal firewood program.

Lake of the Woods Vegetation Management Project

Long range vegetation management to restore & enhance overall forest health, reduce wildfire risk to Lake of the Woods community, provide a safe recreation experience to the public and seasonal residents.

Lake of the Woods/Sunset Century Link DSL Install

The district is proposing to allow Century Link to place high speed enabling equipment at an existing telecommunications site south of Sunset boat launch at Lake of the Woods.

Pearce Point Communications Fiber Optic Install

The district is proposing to allow Hunter Communications to place approximately 1400 feet of fiber optic cable within underground conduit.

Under Analysis

Chiloquin Sewer project

This project will connect the Chiloquin Ranger District to the town of Chiloquin's sewer line

Cold Springs (3651 Road) Danger Trees

Removal of dead trees along the 3651 road which is a highly traveled road that leads to Cold Springs Trailhead. Limbs and slash would be piled for later burning and the area designated for personal or commercial firewood collection.

Dead Horse and Campbell Lakes and Campgrounds Fences

To exclude livestock from Dead Horse Lake/Campground and Campbell Lake/Campground, we will construct wooden fences and install cattle guards at roads and hiker gates at trails. Where possible we may also fell dead trees to block livestock access.

Forest Plan Amendments for the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline

The Forest Service is proposing to amend the Land and Resource Management Plans (LRMP) for the Umpqua, Rogue River, and Winema National Forests for the proposed Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline.

Miller Lake Road Restoration

The Forest Service proposes to improve resource conditions, and increase the forest resilience to insect and disease infestations, along the 9772 road between the city of Chemult and Miller Lake, on about 3,000 acres of National Forest.

North Boundary Fuels Reduction

The district is proposing 13,000 acres for prescribed burn treatments. These treatments include line preparation around the units, creation of one large fuel break along the eastern boundary between Crater Lake National Park and the forest boundary.

Road 4550 Commercial Firewood

Harvest of dead trees adjacent to 2 miles of FSR 4550 and several short spurs. Total acres is 249.

Thomas Creek Landscape Restoration Project

The proposal includes a holistic approach that uses vegetation management, fuel reduction, road management, aspen restoration, and meadow and riparian restoration, to restore the landscape. Both mechanical and non-mechanical treatments are proposed.

Threemile Creek 110 Road Crossing

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.

Analysis Completed

004.Quincy Resources Drilling Project

Quincy Resources, Inc. has proposaed exploration core drilling at 29 existing pads, construction of approx. 150 feet of new road along with related activities described in Plan of Operations for Angel Camp and Quartz Mountain sites.

East Hills Project

Landscape planning on 138,733 acres of National Forest System lands with a focus on promoting sustainable forest and watershed functions.

Green Mountain Whitebark Pine Restoration

Dry Creek Juniper Reduction

The Forest is proposing to cut non-old-growth juniper in the Dry Creek water sub-shed to improve wildlife habitat in the Barry Point Fire area. Treatment techniques could include any or all: lop & scatter, piling, pile & cover, fire, removal.

Swamp Creek, Mill Flat and Simms Grazing Allotments Project

This area has been brought forward for analysis at this time in order to comply with the Rescission Act of 1995, which requires the Forest Service to establish and adhere to a schedule for completion of NEPA analyses and decisions on all allotments.
