Wrangle Timber Sale Activities Begins2/13/2015

Winthrop, WA—Log Trucks and equipment have begun working in the Buck Lake, Siegels Slough, and First Creek areas, northwest of Winthrop Washington. 

The activity is connected with the Wrangle Timber Sale, analyzed under the Buck Forest and Fuels Environmental Assessment.  The commercial thinning treatments are designed to improve forest health and reduce hazardous fuels.

Timber hauling in the First Creek area will occur on First Creek and Cub Creek Roads.  Log hauling in the Buck Lake and Siegels Slough areas will be will be on West Chewuch, Eightmile and Buck Lake Roads. 

“Truck traffic will have some impact on local residents and visitors to the area,” said Mike Liu, Methow Valley District Ranger.  “We appreciate everyone’s patience as this important work takes place.”

Winter logging minimizes impacts to forest soils, due to snow cover and frozen ground conditions.  Work planned as part of the Buck Forest and Fuels project includes commercial and pre-commercial thinning, stand regeneration, mechanical fuels treatments, prescribed fire and road management.  These activities occur in phases and can take years to complete.

For more information about the Wrangle Timber Sale, please call Erica Taecker, Acting Vegetation Management Staff Officer for the Methow Valley Ranger District at 509-996-4000.
