SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Urgent Removal of Timber. OMB Number: 0596–0167. Expiration Date of Approval: July 31, 2009. Type of Request: Extension with no revision. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Abstract: Regulations at 36 CFR 223.53 allow timber sale purchasers to ask for extensions of certain National Forest timber sale contracts when the manufacturing facilities or logging equipment capacity available to purchasers are insufficient to provide for both the rapid harvest of damaged non-National Forest System (NFS) timber in need of expeditious removal and the continued harvest of undamaged (green) timber under contract with the Forest Service. When requesting an urgent removal extension, purchasers are required to provide documentation supporting the need. The collected information is necessary for the contracting officer to make a determination as to whether the purchaser meets the conditions for receiving an urgent removal extension on one or more NFS timber sale contracts. The intent of this information collection is to assure that provisions of timber sale contracts allowing extensions of time for harvest of NFS timber are consistent with the requirements of the National Forest Management Act (16 U.S.C. 472a), while: • Minimizing loss of NFS timber adjacent to other timber infested with insects and disease or damaged by fire; • Reduce the threat to public safety and property resulting from such catastrophic events; and • Promote the wise use and conservation of natural resources. The National Forest Management Act requires that extensions of contract time shall not be granted unless ‘‘the purchaser has diligently performed in accordance with an approved plan of operation or that the substantial overriding public interest justifies the extension.’’ Regulations at 36 CFR 223.115 mirror the National Forest Management Act. Regulations at 36 CFR 223.53(b) required the Regional Forester to verify in writing that: (1) A specific catastrophe occurred for which urgent removal extensions should be granted; and (2) Failure to harvest the damaged non-NFS timber promptly could result in the following: (i) Pose a threat to public safety, (ii) Create a threat of an insect or disease epidemic to NFS or other lands or resources, or (iii) Significant private or other public resource loss.
