Document Description
Plant 1100 Coast Live Oak and Sycamore trees at Brannan Island SRA. The trees are native species and seedlings have been grown from acorns and seeds collected in the intermediate vicinity of the park unit. Trees of the "15 gallon" size will be planted in holes no less than 18 inches deep by 30 inches wide. Seedlings may be planted in smaller holes which provide sufficient growing room. All trees will be double staked. The trees will be maintained for three years. Temporary irrigation will be installed as needed to water the trees. HART Inc. is completing this work under a contract with the Sacramento Tree Foundation. The District Resource Ecologist will review the planting locations prior to ground disturbance. Tree planting will not be conducted in areas at Brannan Island SRA which are used by Burrowing Owls. No cultural resources are present in the project area.
