DB Cooper Fuel Reduction Demonstration CE Timber Sale

The Evans Creek Collaborative group working on fuels reduction projects in the Cooper Spur area have move forward with the idea to have a demonstration area for future timber sales focused on reducing the intensity of fire in the forests. This small project will be a place for the group to discuss on-site differences about forest fire management practices. The logging will occur under a categorical exclusion (CE), exempting it from environmental assessment.

From the scoping letter Although a need for fuel reduction on National Forest System lands adjacent to private land exists on a much wider scale in the Cooper Spur area, the collaborative group preferred to start with a demonstration project at a smaller scale.
