Project Description:
The BLM, Coeur d’Alene Field Office, is proposing the Mullan Forest Health Collaborative Project in response to requests by community leaders to reduce the potential wildland fire threat to Mullan, Idaho, and to implement recommendations in the “Shoshone County Wildland Urban Interface Fire Mitigation Plan” (2011 Revision). The project could also provide the county a short term economic stimulus. The Mullan project area encompasses approximately 500 acres of public land less than one mile north or south of the town of Mullan, within the high and steep mountains and narrow gulches that burned around Mullan in 1910. Proposed actions would transition forests closer to their pre-settlement species mix, density, structure, and diversity so it could be more resilient and resistant to the effects of insects, disease, and wildfire. The project would also provide a short-term economic stimulus by providing timber harvesting opportunities and service related work.
