Document Description
UCSF is proposing to adopt and implement a vegetation management play for the UCSF Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve (Reserve). The University-owned Reserve is a largely undeveloped 61-acre forest located within UCSF's Parnassus Heights campus site at the center of SF. The vegetation in the Reserve is currently neither healthy nor diverse. To achieve a healthy and stable ecosystem, the plan outlines strategies for increasing the biodiversity of vegetation, conserving existing native vegetation, improving the regeneration and recruitment of tall tree species, managing insect and disease pressure on blue gum eucalyptus and improving structural diversity. In accordance with UCSF's already established risk-reduction program, the plan outlines the goal of protecting the safety of Reserve users and adjacent structures with vegetation management to reduce the risk of both tree failure and wildfire.
