Salvaging downed trees

The Allegheny National Forest and the Northern Research Station is proposing to salvage wind thrown and damaged trees on approximately 140 acres of National Forest System lands in the Kane Experimental Forest located in Elk County. The trees were thrown or damaged by a windstorm on May 1, 2017.

The project is located in Management Area 8.6. Salvage timber harvesting may occur in Management Area 8.6 in response to forest health issues or catastrophic events, such as wind or ice. The purpose of salvaging the timber is to recover the economic value that would otherwise be lost and to allow scientists to address and interpret effect of wind throw on the long-term Allegheny Hardwood Management Strategy Study. The scoping letter and map can be found on the ANF’s website: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=52262.
