*The trees (Monterey cypress, Monterey pine and Eucalyptus) in the Presidio were overplanted in the original and huge landscaping effort of ca.1885-1920. Also the cypress and pines have a life span of approximately 100 years. So, since the early 1900's there has been an on-going need and program for thinning as well as re-planting) the Presidio forest. The trees in Goldsworthy's sculptures were all harvested at the proper time and stock-piled for possible future use.
