San Pasqual Valley Cemetery Pepper Tree Removal
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will improve the San Pasqual Valley Cemetery and protect the site from potential damage from a dead Peruvian pepper tree (Schinus molle). The tree will be cut and removed with caution so that no significant damage occurs to above or below ground cemetery features. If feasible, the dead trunk of the pepper tree would be used to create a wood carving that will memorialize ancestors of the San Pasqual Band of Indians. If the trunk is unsuitable for carving, it will be cut above grade and removed from the site so that there is minimal disturbance to the ground. Local native plants species may be planted or seeded depending on the sensitivity of the ground to improve the landscaping of the cemetery.
