Trippet Ranch Oak Woodland Restoration
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project proposes oak plantings and maintenance of coast live oak trees over a 3-year period at Trippet Ranch in Topanga State Park. The purpose of the project is to address oak woodland die off from weather extremes, insect infestation, disease, wildfire, and limited natural recruitment. The project follows a priority planting plan which uses predicted climate change estimates to anticipate areas that are more likely to support live oaks for the next 100-200 years. The project will use similar metrics and methods to a previous 3-year restoration project in the project vicinity that was performed in coordination with the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains between 2019 and 2022. The project will also provide continued care and maintenance of the oak tree saplings previously planted.
