This THP is about a dozen miles SE of Arnold, CA near Beardsley Lake and the Middle Fork of the Stanislaus River at an elevation of 3,100 to 4,700 feet. Sierra Pacific Industries is planning a tractor based logging operation in ponderosa pine, sugar pine, white fir, Douglas fir and incense cedar forests. SPI wants to use 4 skid trails inside class I, class II and class III watercourses, and use tractors at class III (intermittent) watercourse crossings during the winter period. 35 road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning and culvert repair/replacement. More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
