Kaulbach Island Range Easement Clearing

Canadian Coast Guard is planning to clear vegetation within the Kaulbach Island Range clearing easement. The Kaulbach Island Range lights are partially blocked due to vegetation growth, and can no longer be used as an accurate navigational aid. Due to the lack of visibility, the aid of navigation is no longer functional, thus excess site vegetation must be cleared.

CCG plans to use mainly hand operated tools to clear the Kaulbach Island Range Easement. The range is approximately 370 ft. long, 12 ft. wide. The range expands to 100 ft. wide at the Front Range light next to the shoreline to capture a wider angle of approach, totalling 9800 ft2. The total area to be cleared is roughly 0.4 acres. All merchantable timber (minimum 100mm diameter at butt and 2.5m in length) is to be cut, limbed and stacked neatly at edge of easement in 2.5 meter lengths. All remaining trees less than 100mm at butt, brush, limbs, etc. is to be chipped and dispersed evenly within the easement. All remaining stumps of trees are to be no more than 150mm above grade.

This site is located on Kaulbach Island, NS and is required for the Aids To Navigation Program to mark navigational significance for the Mariner.
