Projects

Find information here about specific projects that the Fremont Winema National Forest are evaluating, planning or actively implementing. The Schedule of Proposed Actions (SOPA) and National Enviromental Policy Act (NEPA) projects documentation including supporting maps and documents are available.

Schedule of Proposed Actions

Each quarter, the Forests publish a Schedule of Proposed Actions or SOPA. The SOPA is an information guide for public involvement in the management of the Forests' natural resources.

Programmatic Restoration Project

The Fremont-Winema National Forest Programmatic Restoration Project decision will allow the Forest to play an active collaborative role with other agencies, the Klamath Tribes and various organizations in the development and implementation of future watershed restoration and resource improvement actions.

Fremont-Winema National Forest Current and Recent Projects

Developing Proposal

  • Northwest Forest Plan Amendment

    The 21 members of the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) Federal Advisory Committee will provide NWFP modernization recommendations to the USFS.

  • Region 6 Elite Tree Protection Project

    The Pacific Northwest Region is collaborating with nine Forests to develop a region-wide project to protect whitebark pine trees (Pinus albicaulis) that have a high level of white pine blister rust resistance.

Under Analysis

  • BPA-Lapine-Chiloquin Priority Pole Project

    BPA has identified roads that require maintenance to ensure safe access to the LAPI-CHIL-1 transmission facilities. The road maintenance will allow BPA to also perform wood pole replacements that need to be completed along the transmission line.

  • Buffalo Meadow Warming Shelter Project

    This project proposes to install a pre-engineered shelter on the edge of a large meadow, known locally as Buffalo Meadow.

  • Chiloquin Sewer project

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

  • Fremont Winema Post Fire Resiliency Project

    The Forest Service is proposing to treat approximately 59,849 acres within the 116,985-acre project boundary. Treatments include reforestation, fuel reduction, site preparation, meadow and aquatic habitat restoration, and plantation maintenance.

  • Klamath Landscape Resiliency Project

    The project proposes vegetation treatments, fuels treatments, road maintenance, and botany enhancement treatments totaling 11,277 acres. The project also proposes installation of interpretive signs.

  • Lake of the Woods Resort Expansion Project

    I am proposing several actions at Lake of the Woods Resort including road and transportation improvements, dock renovation at the Resort marina, installation of park model cabins, addition of RV sites, and remodeling of the Marina building.

  • Mt. McLoughlin Trailhead Relocation Project

    There is a need to relocate the Mt. Mcloughlin Trailhead and parking area to avoid initial and long-term maintenance costs associated with constructing a new bridge across the Cascade Canal.

  • Ninemile Fuel Break and Timber Stand Improvement Project

    Create and maintain linear fuel breaks along system roads and improve timber stands. Width of the linear fuel breaks would be a maximum of 1000 feet combining both sides of the road. Improve timber stands by decreasing trees per acre and fuel loading

  • Paradise Restoration Project

    The purpose of the Paradise Restoration Project is ecosystem restoration. Action is needed to restore healthy forest ecosystems, improve wildlife habitats, and protect life, property and infrastructure within

Analysis Completed

  • Midstate Electric - Master Permit

    Midstate Electric currently has seven separate permits and we are working on combining all seven into one authorization. This Master Permit will also be used to create an Operating Plan to be in compliance with the new FSH 2709.11 Ch. 80.

  • Seed Orchard Cone Stimulation Project

    There is a need to inoculate three seed orchards in late July/August to stimulate cone production. Available seed is an obstacle reforestation needs. Research has shown that this treatment may increase the production of cones.

  • Sugarpine Lookout Fire Detection Management

    There is a need to remove some trees around Sugarpine Lookout that have grown tall enough to impact the landscape view for detection of wildfires. The desired condition is an unobstructed view to detect wildfires at their smallest size.

  • Sugarpine Mt. Seismic Monitoring Station

    U of O wants to install a seismic monitor on Sugarpine Mt. in order to close a gap within the seismic monitoring network for the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

  • U of O Seismic Monitoring Station-Tomahawk

    There is a need to add a seismic monitoring site to the Earthquake Early Warning System to monitor the surrounding areas for earthquakes. Tomahawk Butte will provide a key location to fill a gap within the earthquake warning network.

On Hold

  • Dry Prairie Spring Excavation

    The Forest Service proposes to allow the permittee of the Yainax Butte Allotment to excavate the identified springs to find water and develop a water system off the spring to provide water to the cattle on the south end of the Dry Prairie pasture.

Cancelled

  • Bluejay Fuel Breaks Project

    I am proposing to create and maintain linear fuel breaks along system roads by reducing vegetation adjacent to these features. The width of the linear fuel breaks would be a maximum of 1000 feet combining both sides of the road.

  • Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Access Road Improvement

    The proposed project would issue a road use permit with BPA to authorize road reconstruction maintenance on NFDR Roads 2901-013 and 2901-019 on the Silver Lake Ranger District to ensure that the BPA communications relay facility remains accessible.

  • Cottonwood Trail Bridge Replacement

    The current bridge on trail No. 127 near the Cottonwood Dam does not adhere to proper hydrologic requirements, has structural deficiencies and does not meet current accessibility standards thus it needs replacement.

  • Dog Lake (303) Road Decommissioning

    The Fremont Winema NF is proposing to decommission approximately 3.1 miles of the 4020303 road along the east side of Dog Lake due to poor road conditions, hydrological issues, unstable soils, danger trees, and repeated need for maintenance

  • Pacific Power Batch 14 Pole Replacement Project

    There is a need for Pacific Power to perform routine maintenance on power poles in the right of way.

  • Pacific Power Batch 57 Pole Replacement Project

    There is a need for Pacific Power to perform routine maintenance on power poles in the right of way.

  • South East Zone Natural Boundary Fencing

    The Bootleg fire removed natural boundaries necessary to control livestock movements. This project proposes reconstructing up to 12 miles of four strand barbed wire fence. The work will be completed by a qualified fence contractor.

  • Winter Rim Zone Natural Boundary Fencing

    The Bootleg fire removed natural boundaries necessary to control livestock movements. This project proposes reconstructing up to 2.5 miles of four strand barbed wire fence. The work will be completed by a qualified fence contractor.
