Canyon Lakes Ranger District Proposes to Reduce Hazardous Fuels on 54 Acres
Credit: Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests Pawnee National Grassland
These 54 acres of the Manhattan Fuels Reduction Project were previously treated in the Sevenmile Project, but significant mortality has occurred since that project as a result of the mountain pine beetle. These units are adjacent to fuels treatment areas planned as part of the Red Feather Fuels Reduction Project and would likely be implemented in 2015 or 2016. Treatments would be accomplished using mechanical equipment and forest products would be removed where feasible and appropriate.
The Forest Service is soliciting public comments on this proposal. Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org mailed to the attention of Nehalem Clark at 2150 Centre Ave, Building E, Fort Collins, CO 80526. To be fully considered in the analysis, comments should be received no later than Jan. 20, 2015. This project is being planned under a Categorical Exclusion, which is neither objectionable nor appealable. A detailed proposed action is available online at http://go.usa.gov/FHn4.
