Yosemite West Property &
Yosemite Highlands, Inc., a privately owned corporation, has filed a Timber Harvest Plan (THP) for 600 acres directly west, northwest and north of Yosemite West. The proposed timber harvest will be conducted on two parcels owned by Yosemite Highlands, Inc.: APN 006-070-029 (312.89 acres); and APN 006-070-027 (319.97 acres; see the Parcel Map below, which is also contained in Appendix A of the Yosemite West Community Wildfire Protection Plan).
The THP proposes to selectively harvest trees, which will be physically removed over Yosemite Park Way, Henness Ridge Road, and Wawona Road. The THP, once approved, will operate for three years, with a two-year extension possible.
All Yosemite West property and home owners are encouraged to download, review and submit comments on the Highlands THP. Section II outlines the operations, and will likely be of the most interest.
Public comments on the THP, which must be identified by the THP number, 4-09-009/MAR-2, will be considered if they are received at Cal Fire by October 26, 2009:via mail to:
