This THP is 6 miles SE of McCloud, CA in white fir, ponderosa pine, incense cedar, and Douglas fir forest. Hearst Corporation is planning a tractor based mostly sanitation salvage logging operation with a little bit of selection logging near Angel Creek. Angel Creek flows into the Mc Cloud River which flows into the Mc Cloud Reservoir. There are 9 landslide areas in and around the THP including roadside debris slides, and active and dormant landslide terrain. Tractors are planned for use on slopes exceeding 65%, and on slopes over 50% that lead without flattening before reaching a watercourse. Hearst Corporation wants to use a landing adjacent to a class III watercourse, skid logs through a class III watercourse when dry, and use a temporary class II watercourse crossing. 6 road drainage work sites are planned including rocking, dip construction and culvert repair and cleaning. This THP is just east of the 488 acre Hearst Corporation THP 2-13-019 SIS (Angle Creek PTHP) which was first advertised in May 2013. More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
