Abstract:

The AFRC is proposing to manage tree obstructions to preserve flight safety at Dobbins ARB, through tree felling or trimming. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to manage tree obstructions at Dobbins ARB in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulation Part 77 and United Facilities Criteria 3-260-1. The need for the Proposed Action is to preserve flight safety at Dobbins ARB and allow the installation to maintain their flying mission. To identify natural obstructions around Dobbins ARB, a Tree Management Plan to Manage Tree Obstructions at Dobbins ARB was completed in 2012 Dobbins ARB 2012b. This Plan updated the airfield obstruction data and mapping products in support of airfield operations. Some of the trees requiring management are on private property and have grown to a height that adversely affects safe airfield operations and flight safety at the airfield. To manage the tree obstructions, land access agreements or enforcement of county zoning ordinances could be required.
