This THP is about 16 miles south of the town of Klamath, CA and about 5 miles east of Orick, CA near the eastern edge of Redwood National Park. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in redwood and Douglas fir forests at an elevation of 1,140 to 1,960 feet. The THP area flows into the Lower Klamath River which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment, temperature, dissolved oxygen and nutrients. There are 7 unstable areas in the THP area including; 2 in unit D, 2 in unit C, and 3 in unit A. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning to construct a steep road in unit E to access a bench area across 50% to 70% side slopes. Three road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning and culvert repair/replacement. Marbled murrelet habitat exists on Redwood National Park within .25 mile of the TT-100 haul road, and Del Norte salamanders have been reported in unit D.
