Author: Mt. Hood National Forest (Agency : U.S.)
Abstract: Approves project by the Mt. Hood National Forest (Forest) and Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Oregon (Scenic Area) initiating invasive plant treatments on 208 sites (approximately 13,000 acres). The purpose of this project is to eradicate, contain and control invasive plant infestations, to reverse the negative impacts caused by invasive plants, and to restore healthy, native plant communities and functions at the impacted sites in a cost-effective manner that meets current management direction. The treatments include: 30 acres of herbicide only treatment; 50 acres of manual and mechanical treatments; 310 acres of herbicide plus mechanical treatments; 327 acres of herbicide plus manual treatments; 1510 acres of herbicide plus manual, mechanical, and cultural; 10,736 acres of herbicide plus manual and mechanical treatments. Additional acres would be added through an early detection / rapid response strategy (EDRR).
Description: 53 pp. Tables, figure, references, appendices, maps. The proposed treatment areas cover approximately 13,000 acres in Multnomah, Hood River, Wasco, Clackamas, Jefferson, and Marion counties (See Figure 2-1). This represents 1.1 percent of the National Forest System lands within the Forest and Scenic Area. Approximately 11,000 acres are located within the Forest and 2,000 acres within the Scenic Area. The Forest acres are distributed on all four ranger districts, including 2,444 acres on Barlow Ranger District, 5,596 acres on Hood River Ranger District; 1,270 acres on Clackamas River Ranger District; and 1,868 acres on the Zigzag Ranger District.
