Categorical Exclusions

​​​​To further transparency and openness in its implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, the Presidio Trust documents its Categorical Exclusion (CE) determinations involving the categories of actions identified in Section 1010.7 of the Trust’s NEPA regulations. The CE database may be searched by planning district, project type, CE applied, or the year initiated.​​ The database is updated approximately monthly. For additional information on the Trust’s NEPA compliance program, email N2@presidiotrust.gov.

Project Number19-045
Project NamePresidio Hills Tree Removal and Habitat Restoration
Planning DistrictPHSH
Project TypeVegetation Restoration
CE AppliedRemoval of non-historic materials and structures
CE Date7/10/2019
Project Description
A rapidly declining stand of approximately 190 large, over-mature Monterey pine trees exists on roughly three acres immediately north of The Presidio Landmark (building 1801) in the Public Health Service district. Removal of these trees is a high priority and will be conducted as soon as practicable. A third-party contractor will remove the trees over a one-month period. Contractor equipment will include log trucks, yarding equipment, off-road cranes, chippers and chainsaws. Salvageable chips and saw logs will be transported to the Trust log yard; other materials will be off-hauled. A landing site will be created just south of building 1818 to stage equipment and material. Following tree removal, the sand slope will be inverted with heavy machinery to bury hydrophobic sand and place weed-free, well-draining sand on the surface. The site will be replanted over a three-year period with oak woodland and coastal dune scrub annual and perennial species including the federally endangered San Francisco lessingia (Lessingia germanorum). Extant coast live oaks trees will be protected in place and will be integrated into future revegetation.

Project Number19-036
Project NamePark Stand Phase IV Reforestation
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeTrees
CE AppliedRemoval of non-threatened or endangered species
CE Date6/19/2019
Project Description
The Park Stand occurring within the broad loop of Park Boulevard west of the National Cemetery is one of the key historic forest stands in the Presidio. The Monterey cypress trees within the stand have unusual visual quality and provide an important visual barrier to the National Cemetery. However, trees in the stand are characterized with a very low percentage of live crowns, limiting the vigor of the old trees, which have now reached a state of over maturity. This fourth phase of the six-phase project will remove and restore approximately 70 rapidly declining Monterey cypress trees on 0.96 acres just north of the Phase III reforestation effort (project 18-033). Stumps will be ground, and approximately 400 yards of Trust compost will be applied prior to installing a drip irrigation system. Approximately 200 Monterey cypress trees will be planted. Trees will be established over a five- to eight-year period with subsequent thinning to arrive at 30 to 50 trees per acre. As with the other phases, removal of the existing trees and the replanting and early management of the replacement stand will follow Dr. Joe McBride’s recommendations. The Park Boulevard Trail through the area will be intermittently closed for public safety during tree removal.
 
Project Number19-037
Project NameArguello Stand 7 Reforestation
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeTrees
CE AppliedRemoval of non-threatened or endangered species
CE Date6/19/2019
Project Description
Trees within the 0.9-acre Arguello 7 Stand next to the Spire landmark sculpture and bordering the Bay Area Ridge Trail exhibit characteristics similar to other conifers within the historic forest: overly dense and over mature, displaying poor and unstable structure. This project will remove approximately 100 Monterey cypress trees, much of which will be salvaged, milled and used as site furnishings at the Tunnel Tops. After the stumps are ground and the site prepped, approximately 500 yards of compost will be applied and a drip irrigation system will be installed. Roughly 200 Monterey cypress seedlings will be replanted, maintained, and periodically thinned to arrive at 30 to 50 trees per acre when mature after ten years. All brush and material not sized for sawlogs will be chipped on site. The Bay Area Ridge Trail will be closed intermittently during tree removal and protected with appropriate measures where necessary.
 
Project Number19-038
Project NameWashington Stand Phase II Reforestation
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeTrees
CE AppliedRemoval of non-threatened or endangered species
CE Date6/19/2019
Project Description
The second phase of Washington Stand reforestation will remove invasive, non-native species and replant with mixed conifer tree species on less than 0.5 acres along Washington Boulevard between the road and the Bay Area Ridge Trail. The site currently consists of lower growing acacias, which will be removed with stumps and roots pulled from the ground to prevent resprouting. All material will be chipped and hauled to the Trust’s log yard. Roughly 100 yards of Trust compost will be applied as soil amendment, and a drip irrigation system will be installed for establishing the tree seedlings. The site will be maintained for approximately eight to ten years before periodically being thinned to arrive at 30 to 50 trees per acre when mature. The Bay Area Ridge Trail will be closed intermittently during tree removal and protected with appropriate measures where necessary.
