BLM Seeks Comments on Environmental Assessment of Sale of Beetle-killed Spruce near Richardson Highway

Spruce Beetles (Wikipedia)
 

GLENNALLEN, Alaska – The BLM is seeking comments on an Environmental Assessment of a proposal to sell beetle-killed spruce trees for harvest on up to 500 acres of  BLM-managed lands between Mileposts 60 and 70 of the Richardson Highway, an area known as the Tiekel Block.
 
The harvest is part of the BLM’s fuels and forest management program. It is intended to respond to numerous requests by small firewood suppliers seeking to fill the local demand for fuel wood and personal-use forest products while also reducing hazardous fuels for wildfire mitigation.
 
The BLM welcomes and values diverse views about the public land it manages on behalf of the American people. Comments will be accepted through Oct. 24. For more information on the project and to view the Environmental Assessment visit https://eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-ui/project/1503933/510.
Comments can be submitted electronically at https://eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-ui/project/1503933/510, by email to tskiba@blm.gov, or by mail to:
 
BLM Glennallen Field Office
Attn:  Tiekel Biomass Salvage Sales
P.O. Box 147, Glennallen, AK  99588
