Comments being taken on Rice Ridge Fire project
The Forest Service has completed the Rice Ridge Fire Salvage Environmental Assessment (EA). The project proposes to recover the economic value of burned timber to support local communities, reduce roadside safety hazards, and reestablish forested conditions. The 38,300-acre project area is located on the Seeley Lake Ranger District immediately north and east of Seeley Lake.
Comments on the EA will be accepted until July 11. The Lolo National Forest is requesting an Emergency Situation Determination (ESD) from the Chief of the Forest Service. An emergency situation is defined as “a situation on National Forest System lands for which immediate implementation of a decision is necessary to achieve one or more of the following: 1) relief from hazards threatening human health and safety; 2) mitigation of threats to natural resources on National Forest Service or adjacent lands; and 3) avoiding a loss of commodity value sufficient to jeopardize the agency’s ability to accomplish project objectives directly related to resource protection or restoration.”
