- Elkhorn Slough Ecological Reserve Eucalyptus Removal
- The proposed project would be implemented over the course of 10 years. It includes the removal of up to 1,150small eucalyptus trees (<36"dbh) and 75 large eucalyptus trees (>36" dbh) from four groves, varying in size from 1.3 to 8.2 acres. Nine other groves on the Reserve would remain. Eucalyptus would be removed between August 1 and November 1 of each year to avoid biological impacts. Trees would be ct and felled in place with chainsaws. All stumps would be treated with herbicide to prevent re-growth. Small branches would be chipped and chips scattered on-site to a depth of 6 inches or less. Logs and large branches would be hauled away. Replanting with native plants would occur where natural recruitment does not occur.
