This THP is 30 miles north of Redding, CA and 7 miles south of Castella, CA in the Sacramento Canyon at an elevation of 2,000 to 4,000 feet. Sierra Pacific Industries is planning a clearcut tractor and cable logging operation in Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, sugar pine and white fir forests. Sections 24, 25, 26 and 33 are adjacent to the Girard Roadless Area. Sierra Pacific Industries wants to construct 300 feet of temporary road on steep slopes over 65% grade in unit 28C, and use tractors on steep slopes over 65% grade within units 26A and 27D.
