Bureau of Land Management seeks input on tree removal from the Archie Creek Fire area

Written by on December 10, 2020

Roseburg, Ore. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Roseburg District is seeking public input on a proposal to implement fire recovery activities within the Archie Creek Fire perimeter, including burned timber salvage harvesting and removing hazard trees along roadways and near BLM-developed facilities.

In addition to salvage harvests, the Swiftwater Field Office proposes to conduct hazard tree removal along roads, within and adjacent to recreation sites, and adjacent to other public and private infrastructure.

The BLM is committed to supporting local communities and economies impacted by fire. In order to recover the economic value from the timber, before wood deteriorates and affected stands are no longer capable of contributing toward timber sale targets, the BLM has specific management direction to conduct timely harvest of salvage timber.

A virtual public scoping meeting will be held December 16, at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be accessible until 7:00 p.m. Participants can enter the meeting beginning at 5:25 p.m. through the following link:

“We encourage everyone interested in this project, or people who have important information to share, will join us,” said Mike Korn, Swiftwater Field Manager. “This is an opportunity for people to learn about the proposed project activities and share information we should be aware of as we move forward on development of the Environmental Assessment.”
