The White River National Forest has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the Burnt Mountain Timber Sale. The purpose and need for action is to maintain timber growth for sustained yield of forest products by altering stand structures to increase age class and species diversity. The proposed action is to harvest timber on approximately 839 acres of National Forest System lands. An estimated 18,787 hundred cubic feet (9.4 million board feet) of lodgepole pine timber would be harvested using clearcut and group shelterwood harvesting methods. Associated actions include road maintenance and approximately 4 miles of temporary roads (construction, use and obliteration). The deadline for submitting comments on the EA is Monday November 5, 2012.
Approximately 23 miles south of Eagle, Colorado following forest system roads 400 and 506.
