Debris Disposal and Piling

Debris (e.g., vegetation, rocks, or logs) from the proposed project will be put in appropriate locations that do not damage suitable upland habitat, remove cover components, or create dispersal barriers. Vegetation and tree materials will not be scattered, they will be piled. No piling of slash or debris within meadows, streams, or riparian vegetation. When selecting locations for piles that may be within 1,000 feet of known occupied toad meadows, avoid piling in open, dry areas with lupine unless the area is surveyed and there are no rodent burrows present. Do not pile on or within 20 feet of old stumps.
