July 18, 2015 - Eureka
A Tale of 3 NTMPs – Come to fog enshrouded Eureka in the heart of the coastal redwoods to hear and discuss the triumphs and tribulations of three (3) NTMPs developed on three (3) adjoining properties of 200, 36, and 10 acres in size. View the recent harvest activity and road work. RPF Charll Stoneman will discuss the management objectives under each NTMP and the trials of logging and timberland management at the urban interface.
September 12 • Plantation Tree Farm (Sonoma County)
October 17 • Cedar Woods Tree Farm (Nevada County)
Theme: "Roads and Water - Making It Work!"
If you have a Nonindustrial Management Plan (NTMP) or plan to harvest with a Timber Harvest Plan (THP) anytime in the near future, this program will provide insight on how your roads will have to be managed to further reduce sediment delivery to streams and meet the intent of the new Board of Forestry Road Rules that went into effect January 2015. These new rules are going to result initially in higher logging costs with the intent of saving money and effort in the long run with a reduction in future road maintenance costs. Landowners that are actively managing their property can potentially save costs on post harvest monitoring once they understand how and when some of the work and documentation can be done themselves.

Story captured by Denise Levine
On August 29, 2001, The San Francisco Chronicle reported: “Fire forces evacuation of Trinity County town. Hundreds flee “totally chaotic scene in historic Weaverville.” The report went on to say the blaze, called the Oregon Fire, had quickly consumed 1,600 acres, forcing the closure of Highway 299. Smoke could be seen 24 miles away in Hayfork.
“It’s crazy out there,” said a CDF spokesman. “There are two heads on the fire, so it’s moving in two different directions. It’s ugly.”
But Carolyn and David Beans knew that. They lived on Oregon Mountain, just outside of Weaverville on the way to Eureka, California where the Oregon Fire was heading toward the 80 acres of Doug fir, sugar pine and incense cedar they owned.
David and Carolyn bought their first piece of land on Oregon Mountain in 1978. There was no electricity to the property, but there was a barn, a water tank and a propane generator in a shed.
