ENB - REGION 8 NOTICES

Negative Declaration

Livingston County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Clear Cut of Rattlesnake Hill Wildlife Management Area (Stands D-19, 32, 35, 39, 46, 49 and F-16) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the removal of 58 acres of red pine which is approximately 60 years old. These stands of red pine were severely damaged in the 1991 ice storm. Trees were uprooted, broken off, and others killed by resulting ips beetle outbreaks. Stands sustained 20 to 80 percent mortality. This harvest will salvage standing live red pine and release hardwood regeneration. The project is located 5 miles west of Dansville.
