Description: Page: 10 Figure 2: Standing forest fuels were removed from the Windy Bay Property to minimize the possibility of uncontrolled wildfire moving through the property. Islands of shrubs and trees were left undisturbed to provide cover for wildlife. Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and larch (Laxis occidentalis) seedlings and saplings were left standing where possible to favor the development of a pine/larch open woodland at stand maturity.

Final Round ISRP Comment:
The proposal has received high marks from ISRP in the past and is excellent work. This proposal is a good response to ISRP comments in the Province Reviews and offers considerable wildlife benefits. The project has been active for many years, but the acquisition of land has been an ongoing problem. In the past the Coeur D'Alene tribe tried unsuccessfully for only one land area The proposal would be improved by a better description of the reason for the difficulty in purchasing land. Are there confounding issues with other real estate issues?

Now they have a new list of smaller properties delineated for purchase. The justification for purchasing these properties is well described and justified. However, it's not clear when the agreements will be completed or when 760 HUs will be credited to BPA. It seems like there is still much work to be done. The project is budgeted for $1 million in acquisition each year (next 3 years) with about $200+K for other expenses which seems reasonable.
