This THP is about 10 miles SE of Trinidad, CA and Highway 101 at an elevation of 1,040 to 2,200 feet. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning a mostly clearcut tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in Douglas fir, redwood and western hemlock forests. There are 6 shallow rapid landslide terrain sites along the lower portion of unit B, and a wet area in unit B. Green Diamond Resource Company is planning to use an existing skid trail within a class II (mid sized) watercourse area inside unit F. A Pacific fisher was reported inside unit C in 2007, and inside unit D in 2013, and a sharp shinned hawk was reported 2.1 miles NW of unit A. There are 6 spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 miles of the THP area, including a spotted owl nesting territory within .5 miles of unit C. This THP is just west of Green Diamond Resource Company’s recently proposed THP 1-17-091 HUM (KK 800 THP).
