Humboldt-Del Norte Unit

The CAL FIRE Humboldt-Del Norte Unit (HUU) is located along the California coastline and includes Humboldt, Del Norte, and southwestern Trinity counties. The Unit extends from the Oregon border in the north to Mendocino county in the south, and inland to the eastern boundary of the Six Rivers National Forest. This encompasses 3.1 million acres, of which there are 1,928,267 acres of state responsibility lands and 1,927,410 of direct protection area. Approximately 70% of these lands are managed for timber production and another 10% are recreation areas. HUU includes 1,300,000 acres of federally managed and tribal lands. Watersheds include the Smith, Klamath, Mad, Trinity, Van Duzen, Mattole and Eel Rivers. Humboldt and Del Norte counties are home to the world’s tallest living trees and the largest remaining stands of old growth coast redwood. The livelihood of these counties is dependent on the resources the land has to offer.
