Under Analysis

Confluence Meadow Restoration Project

Restore meadow hydrology and habitat by redirecting flow into historic remnant channels along a reach of Pine Creek while filling the degraded channel and ditch to match the floodplain elevation.

Lassen National Forest Over-Snow Vehicle(OSV) Use Designation

The Forest Service is evaluating management of OSV use on the Lassen National Forest and is releasing a Revised Draft EIS (RDEIS) for the designation of LNF system roads, trails, and areas where OSV use will be allowed.

Lassen National Forest PG&E Master Special Use Permit Renewal Project

Approve continued operation, maintenance and use of existing distribution and transmission powerlines and infrastructure for Pacific Gas and Electric located within designated corridors on the Lassen National Forest

Plum Restoration Project

This restoration project will encompass: surface fuels treatment for fire hazard reduction; thinning for ponderosa pine, silver sage, meadow and aspen enhancements; noxious weed treatments; and road improvements.

Southwest Lassen Watershed Improvement Project

The LNF proposes a limited set of activities that could be implemented to address the purpose and need. The activities can be categorized into two different types: activities at road-stream intersections and rehabilitation of non-NFS routes.

Table Mountain Wildfire Protection Project

This project would reduce vegetation density on 70 acres surrounding the Table Mountain Communications Site in order to reduce the risk of wildfire and minimize signal interference to the microwave path that supports critical infrastructure.

Whaleback Fire Salvage

Project focus: Treating priority areas in Whaleback Fire footprint by reducing safety hazards along roads, fuel breaks & treatment areas; recover economic value of burned trees; reduce fuel loads; accelerate reforestation; & treating Aspen stands.

Analysis Completed

Brockman Flat Fire Salvage

Project focuses on priority areas in the vicinity of Spalding, and residential and recreational lake access roads. The primary goal for this project is to promptly reduce safety hazards and meet fuels and reforestation objectives economically.

Diamond Mountain Watershed Restoration and WUI Project

Project objectives: Fuels reduction; forest and watershed restoration. Activities: Meadow and hardwood enhancement; variable density thinning; fuel reduction; biomass removal; prescribed burning; watershed improvements; transportation system mgt.

Little Bear Forest Health Restoration Project

Little Bear Restoration is proposed to increase forest health and diversity with variable thinning and fuels treatments. This project includes research proposals for future management activities and was **originally part of the Grizzly Project.

Scotts John Quarry.

Develop a quarry for localized source of rock gravel for road maintenance and watershed improvements. An area of ~10 acres would be excavated for extraction, stockpiling and crushing of rock material. **Originally part of Grizzly Restoration Project.

Cancelled

Grizzly Restoration Project

Grizzly proposes to move Forest road 26N11 away from Scotts John Crk; increase forest resilience, decrease fuels, maintain/improve wildlife habitat through thinning and prescribed fire; and implement actions to support three research proposals

Rocks Restoration

The Rocks Restoration project proposes fuels reduction, vegetation management, aspen and meadow habitat improvement, and reforestation of some moderate to high severity burned areas.
