Blue Fly Fuels Reduction Project
Wallowa-Whitman National Forest
La Grande Ranger District
Kurt R. Wiedenmann, District Ranger
RESPONSIBLE OFFICIAL
Project Description: The proposed Blue Fly 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 Blue Fly project area. The Blue Fly Fuels Reduction Project is an authorized hazardous fuel reduction project as defined under Section 102 of the HFRA.
The preferred alternative for the Blue Fly Fuels Reduction Project is Alternative 2. The objective of this project is to create and maintain defensible fire breaks around and within the Blue Springs Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) area, Johnson Rock Lookout, the 5155 road, and private land boundaries bordering the project area. Treatments around and within these areas would increase both public and firefighter safety while protecting natural resources in the event of a wildfire. In Alternative 2 fuels reduction work would occur on 1,382 acres by mechanical and hand treatment methods. Of these acres 318 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 500 acres would receive prescribed burning to reduce surface fuel loadings.
Commercial products would be removed by tractor (318 acres). Approximately 795,000 BF of saw timber and wood fiber is expected to be recovered from the preferred alternative. No temporary road construction would occur and approximately 100 feet of reconstruction is anticipated to improve water quality.
A copy of the Blue Fly 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.
