Project description and location: The applicant proposes clear-cutting a total of 301 acres of mature balsam fir softwood stands involving coniferous wetlands at 27 locations occurring on 18,000 acres. The clear-cuts will be by means of mechanical tracked harvesters. The harvest areas were planned by a professional forester and range in size from 3 acres to 27 acres. Harvest operations are planned for winter 2000-2001 with frozen ground conditions. No new winter roads will be built in or near the proposed harvest sites and selective harvesting will be done within 50 feet of permanent streams. No harvesting is proposed within 300 feet of the North Branch of the Grasse River, a designated scenic river. Post-harvest monitoring will be done to ensure adequate regeneration.
