Description of Work - The Brush Creek Station IRSC shall be awarded under Stewardship Authority authorized by Section 604 (16 USC 6591c) of Public Law 108-148 as amended by Section 8205 of Public Law 113-79, the Agricultural Act of 2014. This law grants the U.S. Forest Service (Government) permanent authority to enter into stewardship contracts or agreements to achieve land management goals for the National Forests or public lands that meet local and rural community needs.

Resulting Contract – Any resultant contract will be a commercial services contract with the option for timber removal.
Project Location- The project is in T 21N, R6E, Sections 5 and 7, Butte County, CA in the community of Brush Creek. The project area lies entirely on National Forest System lands within the administrative boundaries of the Feather River Ranger District, Plumas National Forest and is located 25 miles from Oroville, CA via Oro-Quincy Highway (Highway 162).
