Site-Specific Vegetation Retention Prescriptions for Significant Wetlands


(1)

Operators are encouraged to develop site specific vegetation retention prescriptions for significant wetlands in a plan for an alternate practice.

(2)

The functions and values of forested wetlands vary with species composition, stocking levels, and geographic location. Operators are encouraged to propose site specific vegetation retention prescriptions in a plan for an alternate practice that allow for changes to the live tree requirements in OAR 629-645-0010 (Live Tree Retention for Significant Wetlands) and that provide equal or better protection of the functions and values of forested significant wetlands and forested stream-associated wetlands, and address operational concerns.
