BLM Approves Pine Nut Land Health Project

Posted: Updated:
From the Bureau of Land Management:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Sierra Front Field Office has approved the Pine Nut Land Health Project, located in the Pine Nut Mountains in Douglas, Lyon and Carson City Counties, Nevada. Vegetation treatments on approximately 24,564 acres will be applied over a 10 to 15 year period to restore ecological balance, diversity and resilience to plant communities and reduce hazardous fuels to protect people, property and natural resources from severe wildfire. Implementation will begin fall 2014.
 
“For nearly two years, BLM has been working on this project, conducting outreach to the public, tribes, and other natural resource agencies,” said Leon Thomas, Field Manager. “This project will reduce fire hazard fuels in the wildland-urban interface, improve riparian and sagebrush community health and ensure that historic/old growth pinyon trees are maintained.” 
 
For more information, contact Brian Buttazoni, Planning and Environmental Coordinator at 775-885-6000 or bbuttazoni@blm.gov.  The project documents, maps and other information can be found at:  http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_information/nepa/nepa_archives.html
