Coyote brush shall be cut at the base and treated with triclopyr or treated with a foliar application of triclopyr. Work shall be time (August 31 - February 1) to avoid impacts to nesting birds and northern spotted owl breeding activities. No earth disturbance will occur as a result of this project.
