Public notices for the day of September 16, 2011 Cove II WUI Fuels Reduction Project

Wallowa-Whitman National Forest
La Grande Ranger District
Monica Schwalbach, Forest Supervisor
RESPONSIBLE OFFICIAL

Project Description: The proposed Cove II WUI Fuels Reduction Project is designed to address the intent of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 (HFRA) by treating hazardous fuels posing a threat to adjacent forested private and public lands within the Cove II WUI project area. The Cove II WUI Fuels Reduction Project is an authorized hazardous fuel reduction project as defined under Section 102 of the HFRA and is located directly east of Cove, Oregon in T2S R40 & 41E and T3S, R40 & 41E.
The preferred alternative for the Cove II WUI Fuels Reduction Project is Alternative 2. The objective of this project is to modify fire behavior potential, improve firefighting opportunities by creating defensible fuel profile zones, improve firefighter and public safety, and protect values at risk to loss in the Cove Wildland Urban Interface area. A variety of vegetation management treatments (commercial harvest, precommercial thinning, prescribed fire) are proposed to address fuels reduction needs and modify fire behavior. Defensible fuels profile zones and potential firefighter safety area are proposed to modify fire behavior potential and provide safe areas for firefighting personnel and the public. In Alternative 2 fuels reduction work would occur on 4,921 acres by mechanical and hand treatment methods. Of these acres 2,184 acres are commercial harvest removal and the remainder is non-commercial. These treatments are proposed to reduce stocking densities, remove ladder and surface fuels, and reduce canopy densities to reduce fuel loadings and modify potential wildfire behavior. In addition to the treatments above, approximately 2,195 acres would receive prescribed burning to reduce surface fuel loadings.
Commercial products would be removed by ground based (1,835 acres), cable (39 acres), combination of ground based and cable (203 acres), and helicopter (107 acres). Approximately 3.3 MMBF of saw timber and wood fiber is expected to be recovered from the preferred alternative. 2.0 miles of temporary road construction would occur and approximately 9 miles of reconstruction is anticipated to improve water quality.
A copy of the Cove II WUI Fuels Reduction Environmental Assessment is available by contacting Cindy Christensen, Project Environmental Coordinator, La Grande Ranger District, 3502 Highway 30, La Grande, OR ; phone 541-962-8501.
