6:54 pm
the great jewels of the city. 80 acres of wild land right in the middle of san francisco. but while the forest planted by sutro in the 1880's is still beautiful it is also in serious trouble. >> 25% of the trees in the reserve are dead. many more are dying. >> you don't have to be a professional tree person to see these trees are not looking healthy. >> reporter: we hit the trails with urban arborist scott wheeler who says part of the problem is the source of that unmistakable smell. >> blue gum, you either love it or hate it. the thing with uca lip particular trees is -- these trees are actually fueling their own demise, because when the fog turns this hill into a cloud forest, the trees send that moisture to the forest floor, fueling an explosion of ground cover that prevents any young trees from ever taking hold. >> blackberry, ultimately you can see how it's growing up in
