Legal Notice of Decision
Chips Fire Pacific Gas and Electric Right of Way Salvage Timber Project
USDA Forest Service,
Plumas National Forest

Plumas County, California
Notice of Decision
On July 1, 2013, Earl Ford, Forest Supervisor, Plumas National Forest, signed a Decision Memo for the Chips Fire Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Right of Way (R/W) Project authorizing salvage (removal) of felled trees along approximately nine miles of PG&E R/W corridors on National Forest System land. Total harvest would not exceed 250 acres. Activities proposed include skidding, landing, and hauling felled merchantable trees for removal from NFS lands and associated treatment of slash created by this project. Salvage of felled trees will require the use of mechanical harvesting equipment including harvesters, skidders, and loaders.
The locations proposed for salvage timber harvest may shift based on spotted owl and goshawk habitat. The Chips Fire altered the suitability of habitat for spotted owls and goshawks and may have changed where birds can nest and forage. Early estimates show the PG&E R/W corridor going through three spotted owl and two goshawk protected activity centers (PACs). Under the Forest Plan, timber salvage is not allowed in PACs for spotted owls and goshawks. Therefore, we are proposing to salvage harvest areas outside of PACs.
We are currently surveying these PACs to determine habitat suitability. Surveys are expected to be completed sometime in August 2013. After the surveys are complete, we may need to modify habitat area boundaries based on what habitat birds are using. If surveys indicate that portions of the PACs are no longer suitable habitat and the PACs are modified or eliminated, we may salvage harvest that previously designated area after that determination and documentation is completed.
These potential habitat changes would also need to be incorporated into the Chip-munk Recovery and Restoration Project analysis, as the two projects overlap. The interdisciplinary teams assigned to both projects will work together on this and incorporate the best information available at the time of each project decision.
The project documents are available at the Mt. Hough Ranger District, 39696 Highway 70, Quincy, CA, 95971. For additional information concerning this decision, contact: Katherine Carpenter, Interdisciplinary Team Leader, at email@example.com or 530-283-7619.
Decision Not Subject to Appeal
The 30-day comment period for this project ended on March 1, 2013. Since no substantive comments expressing concerns were received, or only supportive comments were received during the comment period, this decision is not subject to appeal (36 CFR 215.12). Implementation may begin immediately.
