Description:

Environmental assessment of the Tenderfoot Research Project. This research project proposes to harvest timber in two treatment subwatersheds, Spring Park Creek and Sun Creek. The silvicultural system proposed is a two-aged system termed 'shelterwood with reserves,' that uses even distribution of single or small groups and uneven distribution and shape of large residual groups. Additionally, two kinds of prescribed fire treatments will be applied; low-intensity underburn and mixed severity broadcast burn.
