From a Six Rivers National Forest release:

Ted McArthur, forest supervisor for the Six Rivers National Forest, announced today that the Leary Creek Timber Sale, on the Orleans Ranger District, has been sold to Timber Products Company of Yreka, for $436,516.00. The timber sale, with an approximate volume of 5,358 thousand board feet and an estimated weight of 31,065 tons, primarily consists of Douglas-fir.

“We are really excited to continue making progress in our fuels and vegetation management programs to restore fire resiliency and forest health with this project,” said McArthur. “We look forward to working with our partners to accomplish this important work.”

The Leary Creek Project was developed collaboratively with the Western Klamath Restoration Partnership and the Six Rivers. Overall, the project will treat a total of approximately 1,911 acres of hazardous fuels through understory thinning of commercial-size plantations and manual treatments of roadside fuels.
