ENB - Region 8 Notices 05/05/2010
Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Shelterwood Cut, Stand A-5, Erwin Wildlife Management Area will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the partial removal of oak timber which is approximately 100-120 years old. The age of the trees, successive Gypsy moth infestations and severe drought, have weakened and caused significant mortality in the overstory trees. Oak Silvah analysis indicates that this stand does not have an acceptable number of seedlings of the desired species present to regenerate this portion of this stand to the desired species composition. The current action is designed to facilitate the regeneration of the oak component of this stand. This action was discussed, and subject to public review, as part of the Erwin Unit Management Plan, signed by the Commissioner in October of 2008. The project is located in the Erwin Wildlife Management Area, two miles south of the hamlet of Coopers Plains, New York.
