Negative Declaration

Oneida County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Site Preparation - Oneida #10, Stands B-12, B-13, B-14, B-16 and B-17 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves application of herbicides to understory vegetation of undesirable species in conjunction with a timber sale. Herbicides will be applied to 67 acres. A total of 142 acres are being selectively harvested, which includes the treatment area. In the treatment area existing understory vegetation is hay-scented, New York, and wood ferns and witch hobble. There is no significant amount of regeneration of more desirable tree species. Desirable hardwoods such as black cherry and hard maple will not become established in sufficient quantity after the harvest without removal of the competing ground covers. The herbicide Roundup will be used to treat the vegetation. The project is located at Furnace Creek State Forest, approximately six miles northwest of Taberg, Town of Florence.
