This THP is about 15 miles NE of Trinidad, CA and about 4 miles east of Redwood National Park at an elevation of 1,800 to 2,800 feet. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in Douglas fir forests. The THP Area Flows into the Lower Klamath River watershed which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment, temperature, nutrients and dissolved oxygen. There is a deep seated landslide terrain site located in the NE corner of unit D, 5 shallow rapid landslide terrain sites related to road fill failures adjacent to the northern boundary of unit D, and a shallow rapid landslide terrain site that originated along the outboard fill of a legacy skid road in unit F. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning to use temporary roads and landings during the winter period, and use ground based equipment on 2 existing skid roads in areas designated for cable logging in unit C. Eleven 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 spotted within .5 miles of the THP area. There are seven spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 miles of the THP area, including spotted owl nesting territories within .5 miles of units A and C.
