Planting 1200 Trees in San Francisco
NOE - Notice of Exemption
This project, to be carried out by the San Francisco Friends of the Urban Forest in cooperation with the City of San Francisco, involves the planting and care of 1200 trees on various city streets within the City and County of San Francisco. Some planting locations include Naples Street, Excelsior Avenue, 14th Street-between Mission and Valencia Streets, York Street near 23rd Street, Noriega Street-near 29th Avenue, Eddy Street between Polk Street and Van Ness Avenue. It is anticipated that this project will commence in May of 2001 and be completed by March 2003. Trees will be non-native ornamentals that have been selected for their disease resistance, adaptation to the urban landscape, shade capacity, and minimal litter production. Trees will be 15 gallon container stock. All trees will be planted, staked and tied, watered and maintained in accordance with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's tree planting guidlines.
As lead agency under CEQA, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection finds that this project is Categorically Exempt. This project involves minor alterations to land and vegetation including the planting of new landscaping trees. As this is a heavily disturbed urban environment there is a low likelihood of impacting any significant bilolgical resources. CDF's archaeological staff have reviewed this project and determined that there are no cultural or historic resources present in the project vicinity. CDF's finds that the proposed activities will pose a less than significant impact to the environment including cultural, historic and biological resources.
