USFS planning Quartzville project
October 23, 2019
Interdisciplinary staff of the Sweet Home Ranger District took a caravan of timber producers, public interest groups and the general public on a field trip through the Willamette National Forest Thursday to discuss proposals for the Quartsville-Middle Santiam project.
The task is to provide timber sales, structural and habitat improvement and fire resiliency.
"Primarily the areas we're looking at are timber harvest in the form of thinning, and there's also seven units for regeneration harvest (shelterwood with reserves) that are proposed," said Nikki Swanson, district ranger.
