Document Description
Note: NOI The primary focus of the Project is to reduce the time required for the restoration of conditions more typical of old growth redwood forests by thinning second growth forests to reduce overall stem density and increase redwood dominance. The work will include 1,125 acres of dense underdeveloped second growth forest in the Middle Fork Lost Man Creek watershed, located north of Orick, CA. The objectives of forest restoration in the Middle Fork Lost man Creek include: enhanced forest structure and improved forest canopy development; enhanced wildlife habitat; enhanced aquatic systems and fish habitat; minimizing soil erosion and impacts to aquatic systems; and minimizing attraction of avian nest predators such as jays and ravens near old growth forests.
