Document Description
This project, to be carried out by the City of Temple City, involves the planting of 197 trees on various city streets.

It is anticipated that this project will commence in October 2004 and be completed by March 2007. 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.

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 guidelines.

Reasons for Exemption
As a lead agency under CEQA, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection finds that this project is Categorically Exempt from further environmental analysis. 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 biological resources.
