Remove 5 Tamarisk Trees from Torrey Pines Extension (06-07-SD-08)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This project consists of the removal of approximately 5 non-native Tamarisk trees from the southern boundary of Torrey Pines State Reserve Extension. These trees may provide propagates for Tamarisk recruitment and invasion of the wetland areas of Penasquitos lagoon. Additionally, a fuels management consultant has recommended the trees be removed because the trees may increase the risk of fire spreading to the adjacent housing development. A biological monitor will be present when trees are felled using a chainsaw, cut to just above grade and treated with herbicide. Tree stumps and root systems are to be left to decompose in place. Vehicular traffic to remove tree trunks shall not disturb soils. A Right of Entry Permit may be required.
