Trees will be native and non-native ornamentals that have been selected for their disease resistance, adaption to the urban landscape, shade capacity, and minimal litter production. Trees will be planted using 15 gallon commercial 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 guidelines.

Reasons for Exemption

This project involves minor alterations to land and vegetation including the planting of new landscaping trees.

CDF finds that the proposed activities will pose less than significant impact to the environment including cultural, historic and biological resources.
