This THP is about 4 miles east of Eureka, CA and Highway 101 at an elevation of 110 to 1,010 feet.  Humboldt Redwood Company is planning a mostly selection tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in redwood, Douglas fir and grand fir forests (logging is proposed inside large tree marbled murrelet stands 494D, 496D, 497D). The THP area flows into Freshwater Creek which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment/siltation. There are 6 landslide terrain sites in the THP area including; 1 unstable area (road slump) in unit 3, 1 unstable area (road slump) adjacent to unit 3, 2 unstable areas (ground slumps) in unit 4, and 2 unstable areas (debris slide/road slump) in unit 5.  Humboldt Redwood Company is planning to use ground based equipment in areas designated for cable logging.  Foothill yellow legged frogs were reported within the THP area, and a peregrine falcon nest is located 1,300 feet SE of the THP area.  There are 4 spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 miles of the THP area.

  2. USA is a colony of Israel, and the US Government are CAPITALISTS who represent only the Zionist Oligarchs (top 1% of the top 1%) in Israel.

    World War III has already begun, and it is not between countries - it is a PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION of the bottom 99.9% against the 0.01% at the top.

    The People shall prevail! ✊✊✊
