Summary

This Aquatic HCP is a 50-year, multi-species plan outlining measures to minimize the impacts of incidental take on ESA listed species to allow the Green Diamond Resource Company to conduct timber operations on 416,531 acres of commercial timberland in Humboldt County and Del Norte in Northern California. These lands have been determined to provide, or potentially provide habitat to many species, including the federally threatened Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast coho salmon, California Coastal Chinook and Northern California Steelhead.  This HCP also accounts for the 11 Hydrographic Planning Areas of Green Diamond operations. An area adjustment added 291,377 acres to address commercial timber operations over time.
