>> commissioner, i can start and if anybody else wants to kind of jump in. commissioner moore was corrected enough to look at this in different sides and i think mount davidson was the product of much discussion today. so let me just kind of flip up there if i can find it quickly. at mount davidson, the proposal calls for a total of 1600 trees over a 20 year period. 9400 of them would remain. that is-that is what the plan would also be allow. other specific sites that came up. i think glen canyon if i can find it. glen canyon, 5880 trees. the plan discusses the removal over a 20 year period
3:11 am
of 120. i do one or we emphasize the 121 the planting >> that was my next question. can i-we are not removing them >> correct. >> we are doing a one-to-one removal >> removing and replacing and doing a lot of other good habitat. removing mature trees and planting trees that need to grow but you've heard a lot a lot of land management agencies [inaudible] the presidio needs to be regional parks. just to name a few. there is aging and it he spoke from his expense [inaudible] there's not a land management agency that is an actively manage and maintain its urban forest. it's critical. >> weathers opportunity, would we be looking to 42-21 replacement? >> the urban speed forced to counsel recommended a more
3:12 am
aggressive approach but i think the plan says 121 which is the minimum we would do. it's also resource dependent and some of it is i think has some depends on the environmental conditions of a particular site but overall the departments-we operate with a-there's a stock called annette tree game which is looking at the trees removed versus the number of trees added in our system and i think over the last few years we are around 1.8 so we're averaging more trees planted then removed. i would like to tell you that we could get to three 21. i think more trees are better so we continue to plants. >> commissioners? do you have a question. go ahead. >>_to speak to [inaudible]. >>_to speak to [inaudible] >> i am just going to speak to >> i agree. the planning
3:13 am
commission asked the pertinent questions that you get down to it is the [inaudible] is not a golf course about when it's a habitat plan and we have looked at it as requiring greater focus sooner which is a better thing. so i think that is a positive move and i think the number of trees actually if i use the calculation on mount davidson over a 20 year period, keeping a mind that we don't even have funding for this at this point, it's less than 1% per year. so that is just a framework for it and i would go back to a comment made earlier. this document, which is had in a norma's amount of work and enormous amount of staff time, and now in the environment will impact report is the framework to get give guidance. this doesn't mean tomorrow there's going to be chainsaws out clearcutting don't davidson or any other part of the city. so with that i would entertain a motion. >> i like to move to have this approved based on the
3:14 am
resolution that materials. i do agree this was the very thoughtful document, conference of, well founded on scientific evidence. scientists and disrepute maybe like lawyers can disagree. it was a very thoughtful document and i would like to commend staff and staff before staff, and the hard work they did to put this together. >> is there a second >> second. >> moved and seconded. before i asked for a roll call about i do want to thank everybody that showed up today because i think it showed and a norma's amount of interest and i share the comment that how proud we are that san francisco takes this old sears. with that could you call roll call >> commissioner anderson fuck aye bonilla in favor, harrison aye low yes and buell aye it
