Project: Rice's Crossing Preserve Forest Management Planning Project

Description: This planning grant will complete a Nonindustrial Timber Management Plan (NTMP) for about 2,000 acres of the 2,706-acre Rice’s Crossing Preserve. A Registered Professional Forester (RPF) will be contracted to develop the Nonindustrial Timber Management Plan.

Reference Number: 3855P01903

Implemented By: Bear Yuba Land Trust

Objective: Creation of an NTMP will allow Bear Yuba Land Trust to manage the Preserve forest along the Yuba River using uneven-age management and long-term sustained yield methods in order to decrease the risk of high-severity fire, protect critical wildlife habitat, protect the water supply, and provide a source of income to continue management of the forest. The NTMP serves as the functional equivalent of CEQA for implementation of forest treatments.
