Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead This IS/MND evaluates the environmental effects of removing eucalyptus trees in the Elkhorn Slough Ecological Reserve. The proposed project would be implemented over the course of 10 years. It includes the removal of up to 1,150 small eucalyptus trees (<36" dbh) and 75 large eucalyptus trees (>36"dbh) from four groves, varying in size from 1.3 to 8.2 acres. Nine other groves on the Reserve would remain. Eucalyptus would be removed between August 1 and November 1 of each year to avoid biological impacts. Trees would be cut and felled in place with chainsaws. All stumps would be treated with herbicide to prevent re-growth. Small branches would be chipped and chips scattered on-site to a depth of 6 inches or less. Logs and large branches would be hauled away. Replanting with native plants would occur where natural recruitment does not occur.
