Tapia Park Public Use Area Forestry Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The goal of this project is to improve the resiliency, structure, and habitat value of the oak groves in the Tapia Park Public Use Area at Malibu Creek State Park. The oaks within the picnic areas are affected by multiple issues including compacted soils from historic intense visitor use, rill erosion, and single age canopy structure. To correct these issues the project will decompact compressed soils, repair erosion and reinforce with logs staked in place to reduce erosion. The project will also plant acorns with protective metal caging, flagging and numeric tags that will be used for data management and install symbolic fencing around the dripline of mature healthy trees to protect the soil from further compaction.
