The Warm Springs Branch of
Forstry is proposing to treat 171
acres of evaluation plantations for
brush control. The proposed treat
ment consists of a combination of
hand cutting and herbicide treat
ment with 2,4-D. There are a total
of six evaluation plantations scat
tered throughout the forested acres
of the reservation.
The evaluation plantations were
planted in 1988. Resprouted and
germinated vegetation have begun
competing with the test seedlings.
According to forest manager Wil
liam Donaghu in a memorandum
to environmental coordinator
Gerald Henrikson, "Further com
petition will invalidate test results
which the plantations were designed
to produce."
Donaghu also notes that two
units are of special consideration in
the assessment. Mistletoe Flat E.P.
and Big Springs E.P. have depres
sions running adjacent to the plan
tations which carry spring runoff.
Runoff will likely be complete at

The preferred alternative to dev

another rural area of the reserva

within an established sub-division.
Although adverse impacts would
include disturbing the topsoil, com
paction of soil and intensive use of
the land, mitigating measures could
include: construction of the road

as possible; and. maintaining the
homesite in a clean state.
