Title: North Fork Alsea access road hazard tree removal and road maintenance project environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact
Author: United States. Bureau of Land Management. Salem District
Abstract: After 40-years of tree growth adjacent to the North Fork Alsea Access Road (Roads #13-7-10, 13-8-12.1 and 12-8-19) the frequency of problems associated with windfall, snow and ice loaded tree and limb fall has increased to the point where safety hazards have been created to road users. Those hazards conflict with the BLM's designation of the road as an Access Road, especially since the trees have grown beyond brush size and now lean toward, and often over the roadbed. The road' s designation as an Access Road requires them to be maintained to a higher standard, both for public and industrial access. The BLM road maintenance crew performs frequent winter maintenance (removing fallen trees and limbs) on the roads. The objectives of this project are to reduce hazards to the public by removing trees that are both imminent and have high potential for creating future hazards from falling trees, snapping tops and limbs and slick road surface conditions from heavy leaf litter.
