Will all the trees within the project area be removed?

No, only dead/diseased and non-native trees will be removed.  

Removal of the invasive trees like buckthorn, and fast growing softwoods will promote growth of such trees as the oak seedlings that have been shaded and crowded out. Upland restoration of those areas to help the oaks expand and re-establish will be done within the project area.
