This THP is about 7 miles NE of the town of Volcano, and a few miles north of the Sonora Pass Highway 88 in mixed conifer stands within the Scott Creek watershed. Sierra Pacific Industries is planning a mostly clearcut and fuel break tractor based logging operation at an elevation of 3400 - 4640 feet, with 33 acres of rehab logging in manzanita brush covered stands. There are 9 road drainage work sites including rocking, dip construction, culvert work and ditch cleaning, and 1 short length of existing road is proposed for use to access a landing through a streamside area in Unit 2995. 5 occurrences of Pleasant Valley Mariposa Lily, and 1 occurrence of Red Hills Soaproot were reported within the THP area. There are 2 CA spotted owl territories within .25 mi of the THP units, and a goshawk was sighted near the THP on USFS land. More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
