Document Description
The Mattole Forest Futures Program should facilitate beneficial forest management in the Mattole River Watershed by providing Mattole landowners with an alternative regulatory option whereby they may engage in timber harvest that can be approved after simplified agency review. Timber harvest actions include 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.
