Consistent Acorn Production: There is a relatively limited supply of oaks in the age range when acorns are most abundantly produced. Periodic vegetation management can ensure an adequate age range of oaks for acorn production over time. Acorns are an important food source for many wildlife species on the UNF. Selective Stream Restoration: Most aquatic habitats on the UNF are in good to excellent condition and support a high diversity of fish and mussel species. However, some stream channel conditions are less than optimal. There is an opportunity and a need to restore these impaired stream channels. Managing Roads and Trails Effectively to Reduce Erosion: The roads and trails on the UNF are potential sediment sources that can degrade water quality and aquatic habitats. There is a need and an opportunity to reduce the sediment from these sources through partnerships, and better management and maintenance. Comment Requested The Forest Service is seeking information and comments from individuals, organizations, and Federal, state, and local governments and agencies on the need to change the current UNF Forest Plan direction. The current conditions and trends of forest resources and opportunities for change are described in more detail in the Uwharrie National Forest—A Strategic View (Initial Draft of the Comprehensive Evaluation Report). The Forest Service is asking for comment on the topics identified in the Need for Change summarized above and for any other topics that individuals, organizations, and government and agencies feel should be addressed during the revision process. As described above, any comments on the Need for Change should be submitted within 30-days from the publication of this Notice of Initiation. Public Participation The plan revision is an open process with numerous opportunities for the public to obtain information, provide comments, or participate in collaborative stakeholder activities. Options for the public include the following methods: (1) Participating in collaborative dialogue at public meetings, (2) reviewing and commenting on the documents, preliminary plan components, analysis results, and supporting maps (posted on our Web site http://www.cs.unca.edu/ nfsnc/uwharrie_plan or sent to you VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Nov 17, 2005 Jkt 208001 hardcopy at your request), or (3) providing input during formal comment periods. The focal points of the collaborative work are: (1) Developing and refining plan desired conditions, (2) designing management objectives to work toward attaining or maintaining desired conditions, (3) identifying suitable uses for various parts of the UNF, (4) identifying special areas, (5) writing guidelines to serve as operational controls or environmental safeguards, (6) outlining the monitoring framework to be used for evaluating forest conditions. We expect this phase of collaboration to run through the spring of 2006. Our remaining forest plan revision schedule will be approximately as follows: (1) Release of draft forest plan and start of 90-day public comment period, fall 2006, (2) release of final plan and start of 30-day objection period, summer 2007, (3) final decision and start of plan implementation, fall 2007.
