Schoharie County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Schoharie RA #3 Herbicide Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of registered herbicides to control the spread of invasive species (multiflora rose, honeysuckle, wild grape, barberry, Virginia creeper, and Oriental bittersweet) on 5 acres, and interfering vegetation, to cause a reduction of ferns and undesirable low valued tree species (beech, striped maple, witchhazel) on 59 acres to allow natural regeneration to flourish and to prepare sites for reforestation. This is needed to create conditions suitable for seed germination and the establishment of desirable (commercial) timber species. The abundance of these undesirable plant species present on the site are growing at a density that interferes with the development of desirable regeneration. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable plant species that interfere with the development of desirable forest regeneration. The project is located on Schoharie RA #3, Stands D-25, 26, 30.2, 32, 36, 37.2, 38, 41, 45, 46, 49, 711, 940; Schoharie RA #4, Stand A-711; on Burnt Hill and Duck Pond Roads in the Town of Blenheim and Town of Fulton, New York.
