Tioga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Salvage of 56 Acres of Storm Damaged Red Pine Trees on Tioga Reforestation Area #5, Portions of Stands B21 and B31 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves salvaging 56 acres of red pine trees that were damaged during a January 2003 ice storm. The trees are approximately 50 years old and range in size from 6 inches to 14 inches (diameter at breast height). Currently, trees are leaning and creating a hazardous condition for the public. Hardwood seeding (white ash, sugar maple, black cherry) regeneration is present in some portions of the damaged stands. The project location is Turkey Hill State Forest, portions of stands B21 and B31. Approximately 5 miles southeast of the Village of Richford in the Town of Richford.
