Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Chautauqua RA # 13, Stands 45, 46 and 47, Site Preparation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of three herbicides, Rodeo, Pathfinder II and Oust XP to American beech and Hay-scented fern on 58 acres of State forest. The purpose is to reduce targeted species to create conditions favorable for the seed germination and establishment of desirable tree species such as Red maple, Sugar maple and Black cherry. These undesirable plant species present on the site are interfering with the development of desirable forest regeneration. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable plant species that interfere with the development of desirable forest regeneration. Chautauqua RA # 13, Stands 45, 46 and 47 are located in the Town of Harmony, New York.
