Bradford, Pa. (March 20, 2019) – The Allegheny National Forest’s Bradford Ranger District is initiating an environmental analysis of the 7,578 acre Cherry Run Project, located in Sheffield Township, Warren County, Pennsylvania.

 

Bradford District Ranger Rich Hatfield said, “In response to conditions within the Cherry Run project area, the Forest Service is proposing a series of actions to bring the project area into better balance with goals and objectives identified in the ANF Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan).”

 

Within the project area, proposed actions include: improvements to forest health through tree harvesting and reforestation, treatment of non-native invasive plants, stream restoration, and fishery and wildlife habitat improvements. Transportation actions include constructing a new access road, improvements to existing roads and the removal of roadside hazard trees.
