Download as PDF 41518 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2016 / Notices Æ Planting, burning, and other activities to encourage reforestation on approximately 69,360 acres of understocked areas that were previously forested. • Decommission approximately 230 miles of existing system and unauthorized roads on the Coconino and Apache-Sitgreaves NFs. • Decommission approximately 20 miles of unauthorized roads on the Tonto NF. • Improve approximately 150 miles of existing non-system roads and construct approximately 350 miles of temporary roads for haul access; decommission when treatments are completed. • Relocate and reconstruct existing open roads adversely affecting water quality and natural resources, or of concern to human safety. • Restore hydrologic function and vegetation on approximately 9,570 acres of meadows. • Restore approximately 184 springs. • Restore function in up to 470 miles of riparian streams and intermittent and ephemeral stream channels (nonriparian). • Restore up to 360 miles of stream habitat for threatened, endangered, and sensitive aquatic species. • Construct up to 200 miles of protective barriers around springs, aspen, Bebb’s willows, and big-tooth maples, as needed for restoration. Possible Alternatives A full range of alternatives to the proposed action, including a no action alternative, will be considered. The no action alternative represents no change and serves as the baseline for the comparison of the action alternatives. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Forest Plan Amendments To meet the project’s purpose and need, the existing Coconino and Tonto Forest Plans would need to be amended to provide for areas of grass, forbs, and shrubs interspersed with tree groups and allow for treatments to move tree group patterns, interspaces, and stand density toward the natural range of variability. Amending these forest plans would allow for treatments that improve MSO nesting and roosting habitat as defined in the Mexican spotted owl recovery plan. The desired conditions related in the project’s purpose and need are consistent with the revised Apache-Sitgreaves Forest Plan. Amendments to the Coconino and Tonto Forest Plans would provide consistency in meeting desired conditions for ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forests across the Rim Country project area.
