Sutro's eucalyptus trees raise question of how to manage urban forests http://kalw.org/post/mt-sutros-eucalyptus-trees-raise-question-how-manage-urban-forests <p></p><p>On a rare sunny morning on San Francisco’s Mt. Sutro, I went on a hike with Rupa Bose, webmaster of an organization called Save Sutro. Bose lives in the Forest Knolls neighborhood abutting the eucalyptus forest. Though she’s lived in the neighborhood for longer, she started exploring the forest a few years ago.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Bose told me that “it was a shock to me that you could come out of a very ordinary San Francisco neighborhood, with houses and cars and step into this forest. It has birds and the wind in the trees. . .

It’s all having a big impact.</span></p><p> Fri, 25 Jan 2013 03:12:32 +0000 Ben Trefny & Rai Sue Sussman & Rai Sue 22183 at http://kalw.org How to pick the right lane in Golden Gate Park
