San Francisco’s plan to cut non-native trees sparks environmental clash

SAN FRANCISCO – An intense battle is building over a little-known plan to cut down thousands of eucalyptus and other trees in urban forests here and at a city-owned golf course in Pacifica.

Hmm… How do you suppose a business or developer would go if they wanted to cut down nearly 20,000 trees?

Wayne, the program’s director, said she doesn’t know how many trees have been removed thus far. NAP’s plan for the next two decades, she said, calls for taking out 5 percent of the city’s trees in the areas that the program oversees.

That plan calls for removing 18,448 trees in all – 15,000 from San Francisco-owned Sharp Park in Pacifica and 3,448 from the city. The city’s Planning Commission and its Recreation and Park Commission must sign off before any plan moves forward. Appeals would go before the Board of Supervisors.

  1. Did the trees sign a petition against gay rights or the AGW agenda?
