Present Land Use
The project site currently consists of young-growth timber and agricultural land associated with past orchard and sheep grazing activities. In addition to the vegetative cover on the timberland conversion portion of the site consists of young-growth coast redwood and Douglas-fir intermixed with madrone, tanoak, coast live oak, CA bay, and bigleaf maple. The Sonoma County General Plan designates the site Resources and Rural Development. The project site is zoned Resources and Rural Development (RRD-40).

Document Description
NOTE: Recirculated DEIR The applicant plans to develop the project site as follows (all acreages are approximate): the 173-acre work area would consists of a 116-acre net vineyard, 18 acres of perimeter avenues, a nine acre reservoir and sump, two acres of driveways and roads, a one acre corporation yard, and 27 acres of non-vineyard uses. Approximately 154 acres of the 173-acre total would be converted from young-growth timber (redwood and Douglas-fir) to vineyard, under the conditions of a Timberland Conversion Permit (TCP) issued by CAL FIRE. The timber harvesting activities on the site would adhere to the CA Forest Practice Rules and are described in detail in a Timber Harvest Plan (THP) prepared for the applicant by a state-licensed Registered Professional Forester (RPF). The actual logging would be performed by a state-certified Licensed Timber Operator (LTO).
