Modoc National Forest NEPA Projects

Projects are proposed actions that are analyzed through the NEPA process (EIS, EA, or CE) that involves analyzing different alternatives to the proposed action, requires public notice and comment, and results in a NEPA decision (ROD, DN, or DM) which, subject to an administrative appeals process, and is implemented on the ground. The Forest Projects below are projects that we are analyzing or have analyzed under the NEPA process. Projects that are "Developing Proposal" or "Under Analysis" may have an opportunity for public collaboration and input on the proposed actions and the analysis being conducted.

Developing Proposal

Devil's Garden Wild Horse Short-Term Holding Facility

The Modoc National Forest is proposing to construct, operate, and maintain a short-term wild horse holding facility.

Under Analysis

Cove Fire Salvage

Fire salvage of dead and dying trees on approximately 2000 acres. Removal of roadside hazard trees along access routes.

Lassen 15 Restoration Project

Landscape level analysis to address timber, fuel, roads, range, watershed, and wildlife habitat issues.

Lassen Creek Grazing Environmental Analysis

The purpose of the Lassen Creek Allotment Environmental Analysis is to revise and implement an Allotment Management Plan (including range improvements) and to issue a term grazing permit on the existing 24,020-acre grazing allotment.

Medicine Lake Caldera Vegetation Treatment Project

Proposed vegetation treatments would reduce density and add diversity to lodgepole pine stands to deter mountain pine beetle infestation and meet forest health and fuels objectives.

Tamarack Aspen Improvement Project

The purpose of this project is to remove conifer encroaching within aspen stands to increase their health and vigor. Various mechanical methods would be used. Temporary road construction would be < 2 miles.

Analysis Completed

Ash Valley Grazing EA

Multiple action alternatives and one no action alternative are being considered to determine if reauthorizing livestock grazing is a suitable action on the Ash Valley Allotment.

Parker 2 Salvage Project

The Forest proposes to reduce roadside hazards from danger trees falling on or near NFS roads and to recover timber value before marketability is reduced. The project would reduce post-fire concentration of fuels and re-establish forest conditions.

On Hold

Avanzino Range Allotment Management

The project is to authorize continued grazing on the Avanzino allotment. Improve management by constructing eleven miles of fence to meet our objectives.

Timbered Mountain Allotment Project

The purpose of this project is to re-issue a grazing permit,to construct new fence and stock tanks, and to enhance sagebrush-steppe habitats through juniper thinning.


Geothermal Leasing in Western States - Lake City KGRA

Lease-specific analysis in determining whether NFS lands within the Lake City KGRA are appropriate for geothermal leasing under FS/BLM policies and regulations. Appended to PEIS for geothermal leasing.

Westlake Star-thistle Treatment Project

Eliminate yellow star-thistle on approximately 20 acres using combination of treatments.
