Sustained Yield Plan (SYP) No. 00-002 prepared for lands owned by Shasta Forests in Northern California is now available for public review. This SYP describes the proposed, future management of approximately 135,500 acres of privately owned forestland located in Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, and Siskiyou Counties. Copies of the SYP are on file for review at the Shasta County Library in Redding, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Shasta-Trinity Unit Headquarters in Redding, CDF Lassen-Modoc Unit Headquarters in Susanville, CDF Cascade Area Headquarters in Redding, and at CDF State Headquarters in Sacramento.
Sustained yield plans are one of the mechanisms that timberland owners can use to meet the State's requirement for maintaining maximum sustained production. SYPs must include projections of timber growth and harvesting over a 100 year planning horizon, assessment of watershed and wildlife resources, and constraints of other resource values on timber production. Issues and mitigation measures that are adequately covered in an approved SYP may be cited by reference in individual Timber Harvesting Plans. Following approval, SYPs are in force for a period of 10 years.
A public hearing on SYP No. 00-002 will be held on Wednesday, September 27, 2000, at the old City Council Room located at 1313 California Street in Redding. This hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will end at 8:30 p.m. or when there is no further public comment. Comments may also be submitted in writing to the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, P.O. Box 944246, Sacramento, CA 94244-2460. All correspondence to be included in the official record of SYP No. 00-002 must be received by CDF at Sacramento by close of business on Wednesday, November 22, 2000. Questions about the public hearing or SYP process in general can be directed to the above address or by calling CDF at 916-653-5843.
