Sudden Oak Death Vegetation Treatment
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Remove all diseased live and dead trees and shrubs within the West Pinewood campground loop at MacKerricher State Park to eradicate Phytophthora ramorum, the pathogen that causes sudden oak death (SOD). Cut down approximately thirteen dead and seven live tanoak trees, and fifteen understory shrubs. Treat tanoak stumps with a surface application of gyphosate herbicide to control resprouting and potential future infestation. Burn infected wood in a incinerator that is temporarily placed over a 6' x 12' x 3' deep excavated pit within the campground to collect ashes; and rebury the pit with the excavated soil once the project is completed.
