Sagehen Basin Old Forest Sensitive Species Habitat Restoration Project
NOD - Notice of Determination
The project will treat a 2,621 acres of a 9,478-acre project area. Treatment will introduce stand variabillity and strategically enhance forest health through hand vegetation treatments such as small tree cutting and piling as well as tree girdling. Variable thinning will occur in order to meet canopy cover percentages, tree species composition, fire behavior, and structural heterogeneity. Fire and fuel prescriptions (prescribed burning, pile burning) will be aimed at reducing hazardous surface and ladder fuels within the treatment units. This project will improve forest health, reduce fuel loading, and maintain and enhance existing old forest sensitive species habitat.
