This nearly one-acre area between Wright Loop and the Kobbe Community Garden currently consists of a mixture of dead trees, exotic Acacia trees, and brush species and ivy. In early October 2021, existing vegetation will be removed and replanted with a mixture of low-lying native species bordering Wright Loop and tapering up to larger woody species including oak, toyon, and buckeye and some fruit trees.

About Reforestation in the Presidio
Our revitalization of the Presidio forest, planted by the U.S. Army beginning in the 1880s, began in 2003. Since that time, 40 acres all around the park have been replanted with 5,000 young trees.
Reforestation has contributed to an uptick in bird diversity in the Presidio, a clear indication of a sustainable ecosystem. Dying trees also often get a second life in the park, repurposed as benches, fencing, and even artworks like Andy Goldsworthy's Spire, Wood Line, and Tree Fall, which are viewed by thousands of Presidio visitors each year.
The Trust welcomes you to get involved in caring for your national parks by participating in our volunteer programs! Learn more at www.presidio.gov/volunteer.
