There is a need to close the gap between the existing and desired conditions, while protecting forest resources. The objectives are as follows: Forest Health: (1) Reduce tree density and competition, and restore a more resilient condition. (2) Maintain tree vigor for long term general health and to minimize insect and disease susceptibility. (3) Design and implement treatments that move the area towards conditions similar to which existed prior to fire suppression. (4) Use prescribed fire to reduce existing fuel buildups, treat pre- and post-harvest fuels, and influence vegetative development or composition. (5) Design desired fuel treatments to mimic the natural processes of the area and break up fuel continuity. (6) Reduce potential fire size and severity in order to protect natural resources, life, and property within and adjacent to the project area. (7) Maintain soil productivity. Forest Biological Diversity: (1) Manage specific areas to provide habitat for early and mid-seral species while retaining a legacy component. (2) Maintain and promote meadow, wetland, and riparian habitats for vegetation diversity and wildlife species. (3) Maintain conifer/ species diversity. (4) Maintain black oak, chinquapin, and madrone when possible. (5) Develop trees toward legacy recruitment components. Provide Forest Products: (1) Provide personal use posts and poles. (2) Provide firewood—personal or commercial. (3) Provide a programmed flow of timber products, within the natural capabilities of the area. Patricia A. Grantham, Klamath National Forest Supervisor. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Proposed Action The Crawford Project includes five overlapping types of treatment: (1) Commercial Thinning—Natural Stands and Plantation Thinning; (2) Noncommercial Fuels Reduction Treatment; (3) Noncommercial Precommercial Thinning (PCT); (4) Mastication; and (5) Meadow and Wetland Restoration. In addition, the proposed action includes the use of 0.29 miles of temporary road on existing roadbeds within the project area, and construction of a total of approximately 0.69 miles of new temporary roads.

CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION Scoping Process Agenda and Notice of Public Meeting of the North Dakota Advisory Committee This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. The project was originally proposed as an environmental assessment and an opportunity for public scoping comments was provided between August 2011 and October 2011. The proposed action for the EIS is identical the proposal as originally scoped in 2011. If you previously commented on the project, your comments have been and will continue to be considered in the development of alternatives. In order to move forward with this project, we ask that you do not repeat your comments. Following alternative development, the Forest Service will be providing another opportunity to comment on the alternatives and analysis. If you have any new comments, we welcome those at this time. We are particularly interested in hearing about any potential issues, which are defined as points of discussion, dispute, or debate about the effects of the proposed action. Your participation will help the interdisciplinary team develop effective, issue-driven alternatives and mitigations to the proposed action as needed. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such a manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the environmental impact statement. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. Comments received in response to this solicitation, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public project record for this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered; however, anonymous comments will not provide the agency with the ability to provide the respondent with subsequent environmental documents.
