McCloud River Forest

Shasta and Siskiyou Counties, California

PROJECT OWNER: Bascom Pacific, LLC
PROJECT TYPE: Improved Forest Management


Through conservation-based management of commercial timberlands, the McCloud Improved Forest Management Project generates a reasonable return on investment to the landowners while increasing the total carbon stores on the site, over time. About 20 miles southeast of Mount Shasta in northern California, the project achieves a variety of co-benefits, including protecting local water quality, providing habitat for sensitive species, and producing significant volumes of wood that will help to support the local timber economy.
