Cortland County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cortland RA #7, Stands A-6.1, A-12.1, A-12.2, A-15 and A-25.22, Site Preparation to Establish Forest Regeneration will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of herbicide to remove undesirable vegetation consisting of American beech, ironwood (hop-hornbeam) and striped maple on 118 acres to create conditions favorable for the natural regeneration of desirable hardwood species for wildlife and ecosystem management purposes. This undesirable vegetation is occurring on approximately 85 percent of the understory area. This has created dense shade, preventing the necessary conditions for the germination and establishment of desirable species. If no site preparation takes place, undesirable species will continue to occupy the site to the detriment of more desirable species. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable vegetation that interferes with the development of desirable forest regeneration. The project is located in the Town of Solon and Truxton, New York.
