ENB - Region 4 Notices 9/28/2016

Negative Declaration

Otsego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Otsego RA #9, Stands A-1, A-4, A-20, A-24 and A-25 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application registered herbicides to undesirable woody and herbaceous plants including beech, hophornbeam, striped maple, honeysuckle and multi-flora rose on 52 acres of state forest 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 conifers and native hardwoods. 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 Bear Swamp Forest in the Town Roseboom, New York.
