THP 1-12-122 HUM (591 THP) Green Diamond Resource Company, 51 acres; 95% clearcut, 5% no-harvest logging.  Upper Roach Creek (HUM: T10N R2E Sec.27, 28, 33, 34, 35).  Wet weather operations, moderate erosion hazard, slopes up to 45%, unstable area in unit a, road failure sites, impaired 303.d watershed, 2 spotted owls within 1.3mi, coho watershed, trees up to 64” dbh.  Estimated public comment deadline: 02/08/13.

Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a new THP in the Roach Creek Watershed about 6 miles SE of Orick, CA and east of Redwood National Park.  Most of the THP drains into the Klamath River about 10.5 miles away and is in a steelhead watershed.  It is close to the Yurok Reservation on mostly Green Diamond land so there is little or no public access. Green Diamond is planning a tractor and cable logging operation on moderately steep slopes, including some logging around an unstable area in Unit A, with some road repair and culvert repair work planned.  According to the THP there are scattered trees up to 64” dbh.  More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
