Notice of Proposed Action - Chips Fire Roadside Hazard Tree Removal Project
Plumas National Forest
Mt. Hough Ranger District
Opportunity to Comment on the Chips Fire Roadside Hazard Tree Removal Project
The Mt. Hough Ranger District proposes to remove hazard trees with structural defects likely to cause failure in all or part of the tree, which may fall and hit the road prism within the next three years within the Chips Fire perimeter. The project is located approximately 5 miles west of Greenville, California south of Lake Almanor in the vicinity of Canyon Dam, Butt Valley Reservoir, Seneca, and Caribou. The legal description is T25N, R7E, sections 4, 5, 8, and 17; T26N, R7E, sections 1, 13, 24, 26, 27, and 33-35; T26N, R8E, sections 3-7, 9, 10, 15-18, 20-22, 28; T27N, R8E, sections 20, 28, 29, 32, and 33; Mount Diablo Base Meridian (MDBM).
The Chips Fire began on July 29, 2012, burned approximately 75,431 acres, and was contained by August 30, 2012. As a result of the fire, many trees along National Forest System (NFS) and Plumas County roads were damaged and could fall into the roadway, posing a safety and access hazard to area residents and landowners, Forest Service personnel and contractors, special use permit holders, and the visiting public. It is not uncommon for high, gusty winds associated with winter or summer storms to suddenly blow down many hazardous trees at one time, posing an unacceptable risk to area residents, forest workers, and visitors. It is important to remove these hazardous trees in a timely, efficient, and cost-effective manner so that safe access to affected areas can be restored and normal National Forest operations can be resumed. The Forest Service is required to maintain roads for access and safety, and the agency routinely removes hazardous trees as part of road maintenance (23 CFR 500.108, 36 CFR 212.4, FSM 7700, FSH 6709.11, 27.62d, Hazard Tree Guidelines for Forest Service Facilities and Roads in the Pacific Southwest Region 2012).
Approximately six miles (up to 250 acres) of four main NFS and/or Plumas County roads have been identified for hazard tree removal. Those roads, listed in order of treatment priority are: 27N26, 27N26D, Plumas County road 306 (Seneca Road), 27N98, and 26N22. The majority of hazard trees proposed for removal occur in high severity burned areas; however, hazard trees within mixed severity burned areas would also be included to ensure the safety of road users in all those areas where burned trees pose a genuine risk of falling into the roadway. The four roads that are to be treated provide access to the communities of Caribou and Seneca, Butt Valley Reservoir, and PG&E infrastructure. Further, these roads are main motor ways connecting the Plumas National Forest and Mt. Hough Ranger District northern boundaries to State Highway 70, and are therefore used by the recreating public.
A draft Decision Memo detailing the proposal is available for review at the Mt. Hough Ranger District office. For additional information, or to obtain a copy of the draft Decision Memo, contact: Katherine Carpenter, Project Leader and District NEPA Coordinator, at (530) 283-7619 or email@example.com.
