    Do not believe everything you hear until you research the facts yourself!

    What you have is a is a classic example of a local group (Save Sutro... not to be confused with Sutro Stewards)) mis-interpretting the UCSF communications, and running wild with a well organized NIMBY campaign.

    That is not to say a huge mega-industrial entity like UCSF is faultless... they have a miserable track record on many things and it makes them an easy target for criticism.

    In the case of Mount Sutro.... all users are thrilled with the 'new' trail system, but most critics forget that the results came from having a management plan with clear goals. That was supported with over 25,000 hours of hard work from community volunteerism.

    I find it difficult that anyone would be against a sensible management plan moving forward to care for an aging eucalyptus forest, and maintain the amazingly popular trail system thousands of people enjoy regularly.

    But thats me... I hang with bad people.... and I like to drink beer.

    I find it difficult that anyone would be against a sensible management plan moving forward to care for an aging eucalyptus forest.

    The ucsf plan calls for 90% of the forest to be felled with intense use of herbicides for years to come. It's in the DIER, the facts are the facts. It's a unique place as the trees capture abundant moisture which in turn supports wild life. You cut the trees and poison the undergrowth and you get something entirely different from what's there now. So you are sadly misinformed if you think a "sensible management plan" is wholesale clear cutting and and wonton destruction. Yes the trails are great but they don't mean much if it's a dried out sanitized wasteland.

    Eucalyptus is an invasive plant in the SF Bay Area (and everywhere else except Australia), and the tree's oils are very flammable, especially when they're in such a high concentration. In their native Australia, there's a lot of empty space so it doesn't affect people so much if a tree goes up in flames. The same can't be said of the San Francisco peninsula.

    Additionally, UCSF owns the land. Would you start fussing because your neighbor decided to clear some brush from his backyard, on his property?
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I go to planning meetings and talk to real people... I am informed.

    Delighted to have closet wierdos like yourself stay away from my events and not support SFUR.
    The community will also look well past you when they think of the wonderful work undertaken to rehabilitate what was a useless, overgrown forest with no trail access.

    By The way- the green you seem to like is African Cape Ivy, Himalyan Blackberry, Eucalytpus (Australia) and Forget Me Not flowers ( State Flower of Alaska).

    Hope you at least knew that.

    cheers
