This THP is about a half mile south of Scotia, CA and highway 101 at an elevation of 120 to 160 feet. Humboldt Redwood Company is planning a tractor based logging operation in redwood and Sitka spruce forests adjacent to the Eel River which is designated as a wild and scenic recreation area and listed as an impaired watershed for sediment and temperature. Four road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning and culvert repair/replacement. There are 8 spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 mies of the THP area.
