Native Hedgerow Plantings on Local Farms in San Mateo County
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project aims to plant a total of 1,354 linear feet of native plants at five sites on three farms on the San Mateo County coast. Some input on planting designs and species selection was provided by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. These plant species will attract pollinators and provide shelter and food for wildlife. They will also benefit the land by capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in the plant’s stems and roots as carbon. Linear plantings are common agricultural practices and have been utilized on farms around the world for centuries, to provide habitat for wildlife, decrease the impact of wind on agricultural operations, provide physical and visual barriers, prevent weed seed drift, and prevent dust from impacting crops.
