>> we designed the project to figure out what it might look like if we were mimicking the more natural conditions. >> natural conditions include variety. and that's what this project is aiming for. some sections are being thinned by hand crews, taking out small trees with chain sauce, leftover logs and brush are piled up to be burned or taken awayfully the future. acre by acre goes from this to this. >> these big trees will now be able to get the resources that they need to thrive. >> researchers believe the thinned out area is what much of the sierra used to look like. >> when you read the stories of people that came through here in the wagon trains, they could drive wagons through the sierra forest easily. if you look around here now, you can't do that. >> that's because decades of putting out fires made forests much more dense than nature intended, with lots of unhealthy trees, many ravaged by insects. a watershed expert compares each tree to a straw. >> it sucks water soup it can
make its leaves and continue to grow. the more trees on the ground the more straws are pulling water out of our ecosystem. >> the project also includes areas being thinned with a huge machine called a masticator. it essentially chews up smaller trees. this is a faster, cheaper method. but the results are more extreme. so scientists want to see how the ecosystem responds over time. other patches of forest are being left alone for animals. >> most of the wiwildlife likes safety of dense areas. but they tend to do their hunting, their foraging along the edge, looking out into a more open place. >> the sage hen pilot program got input from both environmental groups and the timber industry, and both are watching very closely for results. the tree cutting research will cost about $700,000. paid for with a combination of state and federal money. dan ashley, abc 7 news. time now for another look at the weather forecast. here is meteorologist drew tuma. >> and eric, we're starting to
see that fog expand around the region once again. that marine layer is deepening tonight. and most spots waking up to low clouds tomorrow morning. live doppler right now showing you that gray shading you see on the screen that is the low cloud cover that live doppler 7 is picking up. it continues to expand around the bay at this hour. future weather as we go hour-by-hour, first thing 7:00. as you step out the door, most areas will have limited sunshine first thing. you want to grab that light jacket, we're starting off with temperatures mainly in the 50s. as we go into the midmorning, by 11:00 in the morning, still a fair amount of cloud cover south of the golden gate around the bay. you do notice it will pull back to the coast similar to what we have today. the coast will stay in the cloud cover. away from the coast, you'll see more in the way of sunshine. take san francisco for example in the afternoon. limited sunshine. by 2:00, peeks in the financial district, soma, even the mission district and the castro. but that cloud cover quickly fills back in. we're going to see another cool day across san francisco for monday.
