Title: North Fork Mill Creek restoration opportunities environmental assessment
Author: Mt. Hood National Forest (Agency : U.S.)
Abstract: Proposed Action proposes to treat approximately 2,800 acres. The purpose of the treatments is to improve forest health conditions (removing root rot pockets, removing diseased trees) and reduce hazardous fuels (removal of surface fuels, removal of ladder fuels, and opening of the canopy). The mechanical fuels reduction treatment methods would consist of tree thinning from below, machine piling, hand thinning, pruning by hand, machine mastication, and manual brush removal. Underburning (prescribed fire) would be used in combination with mechanical treatments (954 acres) or without any additional treatments (610 acres) to restore stand health and to restore fire to its historical role.
