Swasey Wildlife Improvement and Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project
Phase II 
USDA Forest Service
Manti - La Sal National Forest

	The Ferron/Price District Ranger has decided to treat approximately
6465 acres with bobcat skidsteers with mastication heads or chainsaws
and burn by hand or helicopter.  Approximately 2479 acres are within
Inventoried Roadless Areas.  The Swasey area is in the eastern portion
of the Ferron Ranger District and is bordered by the Reeder
subdivision on the north end, Sportsman's subdivision on the east
side, and surrounds the Swasey subdivision to the southwest. This
decision memo will be the final phase of a two phase project
consisting of approximately 6465 acres. The project area consists of
shrub lands (sagebrush, curleaf and mountain mahogany) and Ponderosa
pine stands that have been encroached by pinyon/juniper.  Portions of
the project had been chained to remove pinyon/juniper approximately 30
years ago. The succession of pinyon/juniper in the Ponderosa
vegetation type has occurred over time due to the exclusion of fire. 
The treatment is designed to reduce the densities of pinyon/juniper to
reduce the hazard of a large intense wildfire and increase winter and
transition range for Mule deer and Rocky Mountain Elk as well as
increase sage grouse habitat.  

	Pinyon-juniper will be treated in fifty-five treatment units, ranging
from approximately 5 to 719 acres in size. Treatments will begin in
2010 and are anticipated to be completed by 2016.

	The Responsible Official is:  Darren Olsen, Ferron/Price District
Ranger, Manti-La Sal National Forest.  A copy of the Decision Notice,
Finding of No Significant Impact, Environmental Assessment, and other
associated environmental analysis documents are available for public
review at the Manti-La Sal National Forest Supervisor's Office, 599
West Price River Road, Price, Utah 84501 or on the project website at
