This THP is about 15 miles SE of Eureka, CA and 7 miles east of Kneeland, CA at an elevation of 1,720 to 2,440 feet. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a feller buncher, shovel and and cable logging operation in second growth Douglas fir. The THP area flows into the Mad River which is listed as impaired for temperature and sediment, and is an important coho, steelhead and coastal cutthroat trout fishery. There are 2 landslide terrain sites in Unit B including dormant landslide terrain and debris slides, and road construction and re-construction is planned near streams in Units B & C. Over 10,794 feet of new road construction and re-construction is planned, and there are 22 road drainage work sites including dip construction, culvert repair and road bed stabilization. Northern spotted owl use was reported within .5mi of Unit A, and .25 mi of Units B & C. There are some Howell's Montia populations adjacent to appurtenant roads.
