This THP is about 3 miles SE of Smith River, CA and Highway 101 at an elevation of 160 to 1,600 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. There are shallow rapid landslide terrain sites in units A, C, E and H, and a 100 foot section of the SAV-1100 Road has been offset by a deep seated dormant landslide. 10 road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning, culvert repair/replacement and restoration of washed out crossings. There is an historic bald eagle nest .4 miles west of units A and F, and spotted owl nesting territories within .25 miles of unit H.
