Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed McCarthy Hill State Forest, Stand 14, Clearcut will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the overstory removal of oak timber which is approximately 120 years old. The age of the trees, successive gypsy moth infestations, and severe drought, have weakened and caused significant mortality in the overstory trees, necessitating their removal. This stand was previously harvested in 1999 as part of a two stage shelterwood regeneration system. Oak Silvah analysis indicates this stand now has acceptable numbers of seedlings of desirable species present to regenerate to a new stand. This action is listed in the Erwin Unit Management Plan and has been subject to public review. The project is located two miles south of the Village of Addison in the Town of Erwin, New York.
