ENB - Region 4 Notices 12/28/2016

Negative Declaration

Delaware County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Delaware RA #10, Stands A-3, A-4 and A-6 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of registered herbicides to undesirable woody and herbaceous plants (beech, hophornbeam, striped maple and hay-scented and New York fern) on 127 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 forest 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 in the Towns of Andes and Colchester, New York.
