Project Description: NYS DEC is accepting comments through June 19th, 2008 on an application for an Adopt a Natural Resource Agreement from the Adirondack Invasive Plant Program to treat and remove invasive plants from the following sites as described:

Siamese Ponds Wilderness Area; Town of Johnsburg, Warren County

The target invasive species is yellow iris (Iris pseudacorus) that occurs at The Vly within the Siamese Ponds Wilderness Area. There are approximately 48 clumps of yellow iris established over approximately two square miles. An APA Individual Wetland Permit has been issued for yellow iris mitigation on Barton Mines property through December 31, 2010. An amendment to the existing APA Permit to control these additional, State land yellow iris infestations is pending. The proposed Best Management Practices (BMPs) is the hand placement, individual stem injections utilizing .5ml of 50% solution of Aquamaster (glyphosate) herbicide. Denser, freshly cut, foliage may be sprayed or swabbed with a 5 to 8% solution of Aquamaster or Rodeo (glyphosate). The BMP's are best implemented in early season up to post-bloom, approximately mid-June in this particular setting. The control site will be re-inspected and monitored for efficacy within three weeks of the treatment date. During this follow-up inspection any residual, live foliage will be cut and retreated. All cut foliage will be securely bagged and safely removed from the site for compost or disposal at an approved landfill or NYS DOT Residency.

Shaker Mountain Wild Forest Unit; Town of Caroga, Fulton County

The target invasive species is common reed (Phragmites australis) that occurs in cattail wetlands approximately 45 yards east of State Route 10 near NYS DOT road reference marker 10-2104-1191. The confined infestation is approximately 750 square feet in size; the invasive percent cover is 51-75% with an abundance of approximately 175 plants. The treatment of this infestation will require an APA Individual Wetland Permit which has been granted. The proposed Best Management Practices (BMPs) is the hand placement of 50% solution of glyphosate (Rodeo) herbicide directly to individually cut stems. The primary control will be implemented in late July, 2008. All cut stems and/or upper aerial portions will be securely bagged and safely removed from the site for compost or disposal at an approved landfill or NYS DOT Residency. The control site will be re-inspected and monitored for efficacy within two weeks of the treatment date. During this follow-up inspection any residual, live stems will be cut and retreated.

Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest Unit; Town of Minerva, Essex County

The target invasive species are multiple infestations of Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica ssp.) that occur on State land near Bullhead Brook off of Northwoods Club Road. Total size of the infestations is approximately 15,000 square feet. Portions of the control sites are within 100' of Bullhead Brook and associated forested wetlands and require an APA Individual Wetland Permit which has been granted through December 31, 2010. The proposed Best Management Practices (BMPs) at this site is an IPM approach consisting of hand-pulling, foliar treatment of 10% solution of glyphosate and cut stem treatments utilizing 50% solution of glyphosate or Garlon 3a. Hand-pulling and cut stem treatments will be implemented approximately early to mid-July. Primary and any secondary foliar treatments will be implemented after August 1. The control site will be re-inspected and monitored for efficacy within two weeks of the treatments dates. During this follow-up inspection any residual, live stems will be hand-pulled, cut or retreated.

St. Regis Canoe Area Unit, Saranac Lakes Wild Forest Unit; Town of Santa Clara, Franklin County

The target invasive species are multiple stands of exotic, Tatarian honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica) that occur on State lands immediately adjacent to Floodwood Road, Floodwood Pond, expanding along canoe carry trails and trailheads. There are approximately 275 exotic shrubs established over one square mile. Areas of dominant infestations occur within 100' of Floodwood Pond shoreline and will require an APA Individual Wetland Permit, submission pending Departmental review. The proposed Best Management Practices (BMPs) will be the hand placement (painting) of 20-25% solution of glyphosate (Roundup and/or Rodeo) as a cut stump treatment. This BMP is best implemented from late summer through the dormant season. The control site will be re-inspected and monitored for efficacy within two weeks of the treatment date. Any subsequent flushing of seedlings following the primary control will be retreated in 2009 during monitoring. All cut and gleaned plant material will be securely bound and safely removed from the site for disposal at an approved landfill or NYS DOT residency or incinerated with appropriate permits.

Comments will be accepted until June 19, 2008.
