Notice MSB007991 Timber Harvest
Notice Type Public Notice

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough (MSB) Land and Resource Management Division is proposing an over-the-counter salvage timber harvest on approximately 137 acres of forested land across five adjacent Borough parcels (19N04W32B001, 19N04W32B002, 19N04W29C005, 19N04W29C006, 19N04W29C007). The five parcels encompass 279.5 acres, but only 137 acres are included in the proposed harvest area and may be subject to change based on detailed analysis of forest inventory data and site evaluations.

Going forward, the forest management activities will focus on several key goals. These include the reduction of birch stocking, as well as the removal of beetle-killed spruce trees. Certain number of trees per acre will be retained to enhance the aesthetic quality of the area and improve potential access for future Borough land sales while reducing the overall threat of wildfire.

Supporting material is available for public inspection during normal business hours on the 2nd floor of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough Building in the Land Management Division or visit the Public Notice Section on the Borough’s web page  Public comment is invited on this request.  If you have any comments please mail or deliver them to the Borough offices at 350 E Dahlia Ave, Palmer AK, no later than March 24, 2023.  If you have questions about this request:  call Emerson Krueger at 861-7867, or Christian Munar at 861-7863 between 8:00-5:00 or you can send an e-mail to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
