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

San Francisco's plan to cut...


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. Jacquie Proctor, a member of the Miraloma Park Improvement Club, says a program to remove mostly non-native trees sounded good at first, "but now it's becoming quite dreadful." A San Francisco agency proposes removing 18,448 trees in all. Each side of the issue says its approach protects biodiversity.
