This THP is about 7 miles NE of Orick, CA and about 10 miles SE of Klamath, CA near the eastern boundary of Redwood National Park. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a mostly clearcut tractor and cable logging operation in redwood, Douglas fir, grand fir, western hemlock and Sitka spruce forests. The THP area flows into the Lower Klamath River watershed which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment, temperature, dissolved oxygen and nutrients. 134 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 osprey nest within .25 miles of the A600 road, a second osprey nest within .25 miles of the CL1040 road, and a bald eagle nest within .43 miles of the A600 road. A Sonoma tree vole was reported inside unit B in 1994, and there are 9 spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 miles of the THP area.
