Arundo Removal and Fuel Reduction at Border Field State Park
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project will remove approximately 2.4 net acres of arundo/giant reed (Arundo donax) over a multi-year period to reduce fuel loading and continuity, and to improve Least Bell’s Vireo habitat structure at Border Field State Park. Arundo canes will be cut to ground level. Canes will be cut/bundled and disposed of in 40-yard roll-off dumpsters. After the initial cutting, resources staff or a contractor, will use a foliar application of herbicide to treat Arundo resprouts when they have reached a height of 3-4 feet. To eliminate re-sprouts, follow-up treatments will be required. Subsequently, all arundo canes will again be cut/bundled and disposed of. Follow-up treatments will continue as needed for several years.
