Document Description
The Project aims to facilitate beneficial forest management in the Mattole River Basin through "light touch" timber harvest that can be approved by simplified agency review tiering to this programmatic EIR under the CA Forest Practice Rules and CEQA. Light touch can be summarized as 1) generally using only selection silviculture, 2) growing larger trees and increasing the proportion of conifer to hardwood stocking, 3) retaining old-growth, 4) maintaining or enhancing late seral conditions, 5) tractor logging restrictions, 6) generous riparian buffers, and 7) road upgrade requirements.
