Proclamation 2733—Six Rivers National Forest—California
By the President of the United States of America
Whereas it appears that it would be in the interest of administrative management to consolidate certain portions of the Siskiyou, Klamath, and Trinity National Forests, within the State of California, into a national-forest unit designated as the Six Rivers National Forest:
Now, Therefore, I, Harry S. Truman, President of the United States, under and by virtue of the authority vested in me by section 24 of the act of March 3, 1891, 26 Stat. 1103 (16 U.S.C. 471), and section 1 of the act of June 4, 1897, 30 Stat. 11, 36 (16 U.S.C. 473), do proclaim that all lands within the exterior boundaries of those parts of the Siskiyou, Klamath, and Trinity National Forests lying west of the following described line are hereby eliminated from those forests and are consolidated to form and shall hereafter constitute the Six Rivers National Forest:
Beginning at the point on the California-Oregon State boundary line in sec. 31, T. 19 N., R. 4 E., H.

It is not intended by this proclamation to give a national-forest status to any publicly-owned lands which have not hitherto had such a status, or to change the status of any publicly-owned lands which have hitherto had national-forest status.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 3rd day of June in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and forty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and seventy-first.
HARRY S. TRUMAN
