Eucalyptus Removal for Lath House Rebuild
NOE - Notice of Exemption
As part of the Lath House and retaining wall rebuild project, a mature eucalyptus tree needs to be removed. It is located above the retaining wall and its root are the cause of the wall failure. The mature eucalyptus trees are part of the historic landscape and are generally protected, but would be considered less important (there are hundreds) than an historic structure there which is unique.
No potential for significant impact to the environment is anticipated in compliance with CEQA §15300.2. If the project is implemented as indicate within the project description including conditions provided by CDPR specialists, then it is exempt under CEQA §15304 - Minor Alterations to Land.
