Document Description
DPR proposes to promote historic species composition, encourage rapid tree growth and accelerate the development of late-seral forest characteristics by mechanically thinning (using chainsaws) approximately 1,900 acres of formerly harvested stands. Douglas-fir and tanoak trees that are restricting the growth of neighboring Douglas-firs will be thinned to more closely resemble historic stand densities and composition. This variable density thinning approach relies on the presence of existing conifers and promotes their vigor, stability, and competitive position. Felled trees will be left where felled, then lopped and scattered within 3 feet of ground.
