NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) property Sierra Foothill REC proposes restoration of 42 acres of foothill rangeland to blue oak woodlands. The site historically supported blue oaks, but was extensively cleared in the early 1960's and is currently used for cattle grazing. The project proposes an initial planting density of 150 blue oak seedlings per acre. Half the sites will be planted using 1-year old seedlings and the other half of the sites will be planted using acorns. All planting sites will include well-managed and prepared seed beds, protected from cattle, deer and rabbit browsing, and provided supplemental water the fall (seedlings) as well as the first spring and second spring following planting.
