Environmental concerns[edit] Land use changes in Trinity River watershed between 2004 and 2012 showing increased clearing and roadbuilding. From J. Carah et al., BioScience June 2015 There is an environmental impact of outdoor cannabis production in the Emerald Triangle, which is largely unregulated. It can include illegal damming, diversion and taking of water from streams (especially during summer); and pesticide-laden runoff, all of which can degrade critical salmon fisheries.[3][4] Clearcutting and roadbuilding for the cannabis plantations can also lead to habitat degradation which also endangers salmon.[5] The activities often occur illegally on public land.[6][7]


Surveillance lawsuit[edit] In 1984, Humboldt County residents filed a federal lawsuit claiming they had been subject to illegal surveillance by U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft utilized by the multiagency Campaign Against Marijuana Planting.[8]


Population[edit] The total population in the Emerald Triangle is 236,250 according to the 2010 census.[9] The majority of the population is widely spread throughout the woody hills that make up the area. In this sparsely populated region, only the city of Eureka has an urban area approaching 50,000 people. The second and third largest cities, by far larger than any other cities in the region, are Arcata, with 17,231 people, and Ukiah, with 16,075 people.[2][10] With an area of 11,138 square miles, the Emerald Triangle population density is 21/mi2.
