NTMP Status

The Bohemian Club submitted a revised NTMP to the Department of Forestry (CALFIRE) on February 25, 2009. The revised draft is open for public comment until May 11, 2009. It contains some positive changes but, overall, is not significantly different from earlier versions. (see Action Item under Breaking News)

NTMP - A Short Introduction

What Is An NTMP? NTMP stands for Non-Industrial Timber Management Plan. It is a form of logging permit available to landowners with fewer than 2500 acres of timberland whose primary business is not timber production. The applicant for an NTMP must also demonstrate that the rate of logging proposed in the plan is sustainable.

The NTMP has recently become a popular type of permit because, once approved, it is a permanent document, meaning that the landowner never has to undergo further review by State agencies.

For landowners who do not qualify for an NTMP, the alternative types of permits to log are the THP (Timber Harvest Plan) or the exemptions. THP’s permit logging for a 3 year period (with possible extensions of 2 years) and exemptions typically apply to logging very small parcels or dealing with emergency situations.

In the case of the Bohemian Club’s NTMP, critics believe that the Club does not qualify for this perit because it owns too many acres of timberland (SEE Tunheim Plan and resource/conservation easment issue) and because its proposed rate of loggin is not sustainable (SEE Rundel and Paul Carroll letters)

The NTMP is a useful type of permit in some cases, but the Bohemian Club does not qualify for a perpetual permit to log!

The Bohemian Club last tried to bring an NTMP document before the CA Dept of Forestry in April 2007. Since that time, the document has been rewritten and resubmitted for the public record.

A rumored second review hearing on June 5, 2008 passed without action.
