The Forest Plan provides all seniors of Wise County and the forest in the project area and on direction provided in chapter three of the Revised Land and Resource Management Plan (RLRMP) for the Jefferson National Forest (January 15, 2004). ,The project area is about 1,972 acres near the Flatwoods Job Corps in Wise County. It contains five different manage- ment prescriptions. All of the stands proposed for treatment as part of this project are native hardwood stands that are mature and fully to over-stocked. There are also two stands in the project area that are planted white pines and are part of the districts hardwood restoration project. These stands are within the project area but are mentioned only as a consideration for the cumulative analysis part of the NEPA process on this project. The districts goal is to manipulate the age class diver- sity and tree spacing within the project area in order to improve wildlife habitat. Commercial timber sales and prescribed fire will be used to manipulate the vegetation. Nonnative invasive species (NNIS) that are gener- ally associated with the roads in the project area will also be controlled using a combination of methods that include hand pulling and herbicide applica- tion. Commercial timber sale(s), stewardship contracting, and force adcount work (by district personnel) may all be used to accomplish the goals set for this area. The Flatwoods Analysis Area consists of approximately 1972 acres in 5 different management prescriptions. In order to meet direction to maintain a healthy, vigorous forest; prevent de- gradation by insects, disease and wildfire; and improve the quality and quantity of timber resources. The commercial timber harvests (thinning and regeneration) that are planned will target less healthy, over mature, trees that tend to invite insect and disease problems into otherwise healthy stands. Prescribed burning will help promote-restore the south- em yellow pine component in the project area and encourage native herbaceous growth in the understory. The goal of this proposed action is to improve upland bird habitat and to promote-restore southern yellow pine and assoc- iated native grasses to the project area. Several tools will be used to accomplish this the City of Norton. The Good Morning Wise County program provides a volunteer to call and check on the welfare of all participants, to determine if they have food, heat in winter, and cooling in the summer. They also want to make sure participants in the program are not being abused, mistreated, or neglected. All eligible seniors are en- couraged to sign up and use this free service.

Some southern yellow pine planting on landings and skid trails is also proposed to supplement the natural regeneration without the need for intensive site prepara- tion. Vegetation managements on approximately 100 acres, in- cluding: • 10-20 acres• of non- native invasive plant control (manual and herbicide) • Manual or Prescribed burning treatments may be used in regeneration units to promote natural regenera- tion. • Native Grasses will be planted in some of the units In order to encourage establishment of native grass species in the understory. To promote/restore Southern Yellow Pine and •associated native grasses onNational Forest System Lands. The primary purpose Of this proposal is to promote habitat for upland game birds and associated species in the project area. This will be accomplished by increasing structural diversity in project area stands through commercial timber sales and prescribed burning to promote natural regeneration In the spirit of increasing diversity, southern yellow pine and associated native grasses would be planted on disturbed soils in order to promote the growth and spread of southern yellow pine in the project area. Another benefit of this proposal is the creation of early successional habitat (ESH).

Force account (district and forest personnel) would be used to designate timber for cutting, implement the prescribed bums, and ito plant southern yellow pine trees. Stewardship con- tracting may also be used for this project. Some of the • potential stewardship projects include: controlling NNIS in the project area, creating fire-lines for prescribed burning, planting native southern yellow pine and associated warm season grasses, and/or to making recreation improvements to the sale area(s).
