This THP is about a dozen miles east of Trinidad, CA and a few miles SE of Redwood National Park at an elevation of 500 to 1,800 feet. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in redwood, Douglas fir and western hemlock forests. The THP area flows into Redwood Creek which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment and temperature. There are dormant landslide terrain sites in units A, B and C. Ten road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning, culvert repair/replacement and restoration of washed out crossings and sink holes. There are spotted owl nesting territories within .5 miles of units A and D.
