Notice of Tree Removal at 400 14th Avenue

Effective Date
Thursday, March 14, 2024 - 8:00am to Saturday, April 13, 2024 - 8:00am


Location: 400 14th Avenue at Geary Boulevard

# of Trees: Two (2) Victorian box (Pittosporum undulatum)

Posting Period: (30 days ) From: 3/14/2024 Through: 4/13/2024

As part of the Geary Boulevard Improvement Project, the SFMTA proposes to remove the trees at the above location to facilitate the relocation of a Bay Wheels bike share station. Following a professional arborist assessment, two (2) trees on this site were found to be in need of removal. The two Victorian box trees on 14th Avenue, east side, 50-feet south of Geary Boulevard, are in direct conflict with construction and excavation activities associated with re-locating a bike share station as a part of the project. While efforts have been made to try to retain the trees, no feasible design alternative was found.

A minimum of four (4) new trees are planned to be planted nearby, two Schinus molle and two Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan'.

Please direct any questions regarding this action to the SFMTA before the end of the posting period, via the following:
