This THP is about 13 miles NE of Trinidad, CA and about 10 miles west of Weitchpec, CA near the eastern boundary of Redwood National Park. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a mostly clearcut tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in Douglas fir and redwood forests. The THP area flows into the Klamath River which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment, temperature, nutrients and dissolved oxygen. There is a steep headwall swale and a shallow rapid landslide terrain site in the eastern portion of unit D. 8 road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning, culvert repair/replacement and restoration of washed out crossings. Golden eagles have been sighted within .5 mi of the THP area. There are trees up to 68" dbh in unit D, and spotted owl nesting territories within .25 mi of unit D, and within .5 mi of units E and F.
