Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Franklin County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Modification of Working Forest Conservation Easements Held by NYS DEC on Lands Owned by Heartwood Forestland Fund III, LP. Copies of the Final EIS can be obtained by contacting the person indicated below or by visiting: www.dec.ny.gov/lands/59344.html.

The action involves the modification of three (3) working forest conservation easements (Easements) for the purposes of providing Heartwood Forestland Fund III, LP and NYS DEC with the means to maintain the long-term economic viability of the forest lands for the sustainable production of forest products. The action will support Heartwood Forestland Fund III, LP in meeting the original purposes of the Easements, by providing them with a permanent right to lease up to 220 recreational camp envelopes to hunting and fishing clubs and individuals, along with the discretion to permit camp lessees use of motor vehicles on designated routes to access camp envelopes. In exchange, Heartwood Forestland Fund III, LP will convey all rights and title on 2,708 acres of their lands to The People of the State of New York, of which 562 acres along the Deer River will be permanently protected for the first time. The modifications will also encourage present and future owners to enroll the lands in an approved forestry certification program, which will require audits and inspections by an independent entity as a means of ensuring the use of sustainable forestry practices by the landowner.

Notice of completion of the Draft EIS appeared in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on November 11 and 25, 2009. Written comments were received during the public comment period of November 11 to December 28, 2009.
